Patrol District Two
District Two includes the neighbourhoods of Strathcona, Grandview - Woodlands, and Hastings - Sunrise. District Two has two Community Policing Centres:
The CPC offices provide a link between the community and the police. The VPD works with the aid of advisory boards, staff, volunteers and community police officers to set priorities and deliver services within distinct neighbourhoods.
Within District Two, the VPD deploys officers on foot and on bicycles in the Downtown East Side (DTES) to promote a sense of safety and security to the residents and visitor in the area. These officers perform a myriad of duties from enforcement to crime prevention.
The VPD Marine Unit operates from District Two, patrolling the waters off Vancouver including the Fraser River.
Officers in District Two focus on "problem oriented policing," dedicating much of their effort to identifying people, premises and areas that are habitual drains on police and emergency service providers. With the help of many agencies, services and community members, District Two creates plans and tactics to identify underlying problems and change the status quo.
