STRATEGIC PLAN 2008 - 2012


Start: 2008-01-01, End: 2012-12-31, Publication: 2010-10-22


The Strategic Plan outlines many of the unique service issues associated with policing Vancouver: the continual influx of non-resident criminals, compartmentalization of policing in the region (a blend of 20 different police agencies, including municipal departments and RCMP detachments), challenges raised by the prevalence of staggering property crime, drug activity, sexual predators, street disorder and the growing problem of gang violence. While the Department works to address all of these, the Strategic Plan specifically outlines several areas which have been prioritized for action – violent gang activity, property crime, traffic accidents, street disorder, emergency planning (including counter-terrorism), and proactive, visible policing.
