ABOUT THE BOTANY AND ZOOLOGY WELLNESS INITIATIVE

Request a Wellness Check

If you have reason to believe that someone is in danger, and you have no way to contact them or do not feel safe doing so, then you can request a police wellness check. If it is an emergency situation, call 911 instead.

How to request a wellness check:

Contact the Vancouver police department at (604) 717-3321

What happens when I call?

You'll likely be asked to explain the situation, and why you think a wellness check is necessary. The police will then check on the individual in person to verify that they are safe.
