Vancouver – The 2022 Vancouver Police dog calendars are now on sale, featuring all 16 dogs in the VPD Canine Unit at various landmarks throughout Vancouver.
The cost of each calendar is $15 with the proceeds equally split between the BC Cancer Foundation and the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. Since 2010, the sale of the calendars has raised over $450,000 for charity.
The calendars are available for purchase at the following locations:
- Online through the Vancouver Police Foundation
- VPD Public Information Counters at 3585 Graveley Street or 2120 Cambie Street
- Vancouver Community Policing Centres
The calendar was originally created by retired VPD Sergeant Mike Anfield in honour of his wife Candy, a VPD officer who lost her valiant battle with breast cancer in 2004.
The Vancouver Police Canine Unit has 16 handler / dog teams, comprised of 14 constables and two sergeants, working 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The teams are trained in criminal apprehension, as well as narcotics, firearms, and explosives detection.
