The Corporation of Delta Crest

Contents

Introduction

The Corporation of Delta is situated, ironically, at the mouth of the Fraser River, and is the largest, in land mass, municipality in Metro Vancouver. As of 2005, Delta's population was approximately 102,655. The Corporation of Delta maintains its own police force, the Delta Police Department, as well as the Delta Fire & Emergency Services. The British Columbia Ambulance Service (BCAS) provides emergency health services.

Police

The Delta Police Department (DPD) has cut over to the NGRP. Even though this is a P25 Phase 2 network, their transmissions are encrypted and can no longer be received with commercially available scanners. Their operations can normally be received on the Richmond, Surrey and South Surrey WARS sites. The DPD are currently undergoing a transformation to a new livery on their patrol vehicles.

The talk groups the DPD operate on include, but are not limited to:

5689 DE Police Dispatch

All police departments and RCMP detachments in Metro Vancouver also have access to a large number of police mutual aid channels enabling interoperability while working in other jurisdictions or with other agencies such as Fire and Ambulance.

Dispatch

The DPD are now dispatched out of E-Comm in Vancouver. E-Comm staff maintain the radio network, as well as provide dispatch services for 36 law enforcement and fire agencies across the Lower Mainland.

Fire

Delta Fire & Emergency Services (DFES) is a composite department, made up of 6 career staffed halls and 1 fully volunteer hall. Hall 4, located in the farm land area of Mathew's Exchange, is completely staffed by volunteers whom live in the area. Halls 3, 5, 1 and 2 hold extra apparatus that can be staffed by off-duty call out crews during large scale incidents in the city. DFES only has 2 halls with more than one piece of staffed apparatus, therefore they have policies regarding coverage. For all emergency calls in a district where the hall only has 1 piece of apparatus, another bordering engine will move up and stage on the border of those two halls.
