Data and Resources
Under the B.C. Police Act a municipality must assume responsibility for its police services when, as a result of a Canada Census, its population reaches 5,000 persons. These municipalities may form their own independent municipal police department, contract with an existing independent police department, or contract with the provincial government for RCMP municipal police services.
This table lists the type of police force and region for each police jurisdiction.
Due to the differences in the organizational structure of each type of force, comparisons between independent police departments and RCMP forces should be made with caution.
