Shared Resources

During this time of uncertainty, many communities are reporting an increase in commercial property crime.

To assist businesses in the City of Vancouver, the Vancouver Police Department (VPD) has developed and shared 3 documents created to assist the Business Improvement Areas (BIAs) in Vancouver prevent property crime.

With their permission BCCPA has taken these documents and created generic templates that can be customized with local information by other policing agencies or programs across the province.
Business Security Audit Letter template – BCCPA (will download as a Word document in your browser)
Business Audit Checklist – BCCPA (will download as a Word document in your browser)
Merchant Poster – BCCPA (will download as a Word document in your browser)

If you wish to use these documents, simply replace areas highlighted in yellow with information that is specific to your agency or community.

Thank you to the VPD for sharing these documents and for allowing BCCPA to create tools the BCCPA Members and Affiliates can use in their communities.

If your agency or program has a tool or resource you would like to share, please forward to the BCCPA via email at, we are happy to post the item on the BCCPA website.
