Mass casualty or terrorism attacks are very rare in Canada. The VPD has a dedicated team of highly trained officers and civilian staff, who collaborate with other public safety agencies across the country and the globe, to help ensure we’re doing everything we can to prevent an attack.
The public can play an important role in this prevention, as well. If you see or hear something you feel may potentially be related to terrorism, trust your gut and call the police. Your actions could save lives.
