The Vancouver SHIELD program is a partnership between public and private sectors with a goal to help protect Vancouver against terrorism, violent extremism, and other threats. The program increases awareness, builds security partnerships, and enhances resources and information-sharing throughout the city. Our partners become additional eyes and ears in the community, with the potential to help thwart any type of violent attack.
Vancouver SHIELD is the first program of its type in Canada, and is part of the Global SHIELD network, along with 30 other police agencies in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, and Europe. The program was created in partnership with NYPD SHIELD.
