Delta Police Conduct Annual Commercial Vehicle Enforcement & Inspection Project
|Release Date/Time:||June 14, 2017 8:17am|
|Incident Date/Time:||June 13-15 2017|
|Location:||Multiple Locations in Delta|
June 13th through June 15th 2017 the Delta Police Department Traffic Section in partnership with the provincial Commercial Vehicle Safety and Enforcement Branch (CVSE) have enlisted the support of policing and regulatory enforcement agencies from across British Columbia for an annual three day Commercial Vehicle Safety Project.
Delta has one of the highest, if not the highest, ratio in BC of commercial vehicles transiting its roads on a daily basis. This joint operation is one the largest initiatives of its type in the province. The focus of the project will be on business vehicles that may not be properly maintained and could ultimately pose a danger on our roads.
The Delta Police Department is one of the very few police departments that maintain a dedicated team of Vehicle Inspectors. The DPD Vehicle Inspection Unit would like to thank all of the officers, their organizations, and the volunteers that will participate in this event. This is a great example of Federal, Provincial, and Municipal agencies working together with community support to increase the safety on our roads.
