2020 Vancouver Police dog calendars on sale

Vancouver Police Department Canine 2020 Calendar. PSD Blitz with Niko, Bella, and Mr Bentley at a pool party, Vancouver, BC, Canada.

The 2020 Vancouver Police dog calendar is now on sale. It features members of the VPD Canine Unit and their four-legged partners in their best poses as they work to keep the city safe.

The cost of each calendar is $15. Money raised will go to the BC Cancer Foundation and the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. Since 2010, the sale of calendars has raised $450,000 for charity.

The calendar is funded and produced by the Candy Anfield Memorial Foundation, which was created by retired VPD Sergeant Mike Anfield in honour of his wife Candy, a VPD officer who lost her valiant battle with breast cancer in 2004.

The stars of the calendar, along with their handlers, will be at the corner of Granville and Georgia streets in Vancouver on Thursday, October 10th, where you can meet them in person and purchase from them directly.

The Vancouver Police Canine Unit has 16 handler / dog teams, comprised of 14 constables and two sergeants, working 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The teams are trained in criminal apprehension, as well as narcotics, firearms and explosives detection.

The calendars are also available for purchase at the following locations:
