Crime Analysis Unit

Crime Analysis Unit

The members of the Crime Analysis Unit assist investigators, patrol officers, and managers by providing timely analysis and information on active suspects, crime patterns and trends.

The information they obtain helps investigators solve crime, and guides the Department as to where to put resources – both short- and long-term. By forecasting crime developments, the VPD can be proactive in developing strategy to deal with it.

The Crime Analysis Unit manages the VPD’s COMPSTAT program, where spikes in crime are identified through analysis, and targeted enforcement is used to combat it, ensuring the Department and our members are accountable for crime reduction in Vancouver.
