Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information & Protection of Privacy Coordinator’s main function is to ensure that the Delta Police Department complies with the BC Freedom of Information & Protection of Privacy Act (FOIPPA) and other statutes.

The Act provides two basic rights for members of the public:

  1. The right to access information in government records
  2. The right to have personal information protected from unauthorized collection, use and disclosure.

The Act is intended to be an avenue of last resort. It is to be used when the information is not available through normal access procedures.

A request to access records under the Act must be made in writing or by completing the Access to Records form.

This form can also be obtained at the Delta Police Headquarters or the North Delta Public Safety Building »address and map.  Delta Police Department does not accept Freedom of Information (FOI) requests by email.

If you would like to make a written request for records, please write to the following address:

FOI Coordinator
Delta Police Department
4455 Clarence Taylor Crescent
Delta, BC  V4K 3E1
Canada

If you are unable to attend the above noted locations, written requests may also be faxed to the Delta Police Department at 604.946.3729.

Government issued photo identification such as a driver’s licence or passport is required when submitting your request in person. A photocopy of your picture identification is also required when mailing or faxing in your written request. This is required in order to verify your identity to ensure we are giving access to the correct person.

Please make your request as specific as possible. Provide case numbers, exact dates and addresses and names and numbers of officers involved if you have this information, so we can do a more accurate search for the information requested.

Please note that under the BC Freedom of Information & Protection of Privacy Act, we have 30 business days to reply from the date of receipt of the request.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Delta Police Department FOI Coordinator at 604.946.4411 Ext. 0939.
