The Communications Section is responsible for maintaining all telephony (mobile and landline) within the Vancouver Police Department. As well, police radios are purchased and supported through this section.
The VPD works in partnership with E-Comm 9-1-1, which is the emergency communications centre for southwest British Columbia. The Communications Section ensures that call-taking, radio dispatch policy and procedures reflect the standards set by the Department. Together, we ensure critical VPD systems function and excel the standards expected of public safety agencies in Canada.
The Telephone Response Team also falls under Communications. An adjunct to patrol, they supplement call-taking, report writing and customer service delivery on calls for service.
