Integrated Road Safety Units

Integrated Road Safety Units (IRSUs) are made up of full-time, dedicated traffic enforcement officers from both the RCMP and municipal police. Because traffic problems don’t stop at municipal boundaries, these specialized units work across traditional police jurisdictions to address serious road safety issues. IRSUs are located in the Lower Mainland, Fraser Valley, on Vancouver Island and in the North and Southeast districts of the province. Below is a list of IRSU unit names and contact phone numbers.
