2017-2021 Strategic Plan

The Vancouver Police Department 2017-2021 Strategic Plan helps us set our priorities and explain to others how we intend to work towards making Vancouver the safest major city in Canada.

Summary of Our Goals

  • Support our people by fostering a culture of employee engagement and effective communication and by promoting a healthy work environment.
  • Engage our community by fostering relationships, understanding, and trust with our diverse community and strengthening mental health programs and processes.
  • Enhance public safety by addressing community concerns that affect public safety and by improving road safety for everyone.
  • Fight crime by combating property crime and its drivers and fighting violent crime and its causes.

The Vancouver Police Department encourages the public to become familiar with our 2017-2021 Strategic Plan, which will guide decision-making over the next five years and provide direction for annual business plans and budgets.
