For 2019, the Vancouver Police Department has decided to feature their four-legged partners on their calendar. Very good police dogs and their handlers have been getting together on the calender for a noble cause. The calendar, which will raise money for the B.C. Cancer Foundation and B.C. Children’s Hospital Foundation, was the idea of retired Vancouver Police Sergeant Mike Anfield, whose wife, VPD Constable Candy Anfield, lost her battle with breast cancer in 2004.
The police services dogs are important to Vancouver Police Department because they are trained in a variety of disciplines which include: tracking, criminal apprehension, evidence recovery, narcotics, firearms and explosives detection. The Canine Unit responds to over 10,000 calls for service each year in the city of Vancouver, and to Lower Mainland police agencies who require the services of a police dog and handler.
