Police work involves significant responsibility, diversity and complexity in both the prevention of crime and criminal acts as well as the enforcement of a wide variety of criminal law, the laws of the Province, and Municipal bylaws. This is done through the anticipation, discovery and investigation of crime, the laying of charges and the effective delivery to the courts of the evidence gathered.

The Victoria Police Department is the oldest municipal police department in Canada west of the Great Lakes. We are a progressive organization and the first Canadian law enforcement agency to deploy conduted energy weapons.  We can also be credited with the first digital forensic unit in Canada.
