The members of the Vancouver Police Department are dedicated to protecting and serving the citizens of Vancouver. We are committed to making Vancouver a safer city by providing service with integrity, compassion, accountability, respect, and excellence (ICARE), and our officers are often recognized for their outstanding work.


If you have had a positive experience or have recently observed a member of the Vancouver Police Department who you feel is worthy of a compliment, we would like to hear from you. We are extremely proud of our members and your comments are greatly appreciated.

If you have concerns about the actions or conduct of a VPD police officer, the service provided by VPD, or the policies guiding VPD officers, you can file a complaint. Complaints must generally be made within one year of an incident, and can be made directly to the Office of Police Complaint Commissioner (OPCC). If you prefer, you can file your complaint with the VPD and we will forward it to the OPCC.

Transparency and complainant participation

The VPD Professional Standards Section’s investigators and civilian professionals are specifically trained to provide information regarding all aspects of the complaint process, and to assist with the completion of complaint forms, if required.

Investigators receive specialized training in cooperation with the OPCC through provincially approved classroom and online courses. The training ensures professionalism and proficiency in all aspects of complaint-based and ordered investigations relating to the conduct of members under Part 11 of the Police Act.

We encourage all complainants to remain involved in their investigation, as this helps them understand the process, its expectations, and outcomes. Their cooperation also helps ensure a thorough and balanced investigation.
