VPD Assistance for People with Disabilities

The City of Vancouver Police Department makes every reasonable effort to provide equal access to City facilities, programs, services and activities for people with disabilities in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). You can learn more here about Accessibility and Inclusion at the City of Vancouver 

To ensure effective communication with individuals with communication disabilities, the Vancouver Police Department provides auxiliary aids and services, such as qualified ASL interpreters and video relay interpreting services, free of charge. If you are requesting emergency or non-emergency police assistance and would like to request an auxiliary aid or service in order to communicate effectively with the Vancouver Police Department, please advise the 911 or 311 dispatcher or the responding officer of the need for auxiliary aid or service so we may communicate effectively with you. For other types of services or requests related to accessibility, please contact the city’s ADA Coordinator at ADACoordinator@cityofvancouver.us.
