All pending and confirmed prescription deliveries will be completed prior to the program being discontinued
VANCOUVER — On April 10, following the lead of neighboring law enforcement agencies, the Vancouver Police Department began a pilot prescription delivery program for city of Vancouver residents while the Washington state stay-at-home order is in place.
Prescriptions were delivered by Vancouver Police Department Recruit officers who were waiting to attend the Washington State Basic Law Enforcement Academy. The recruit officers will be returning to the academy to resume or begin their training; therefore the prescription delivery program will be discontinued Thursday (May 28), due to staffing availability. All pending and confirmed prescription deliveries will be completed prior to the program being discontinued.
The program provided recruit officers an opportunity to serve the residents of Vancouver in advance of their training to become Vancouver Police officers. Over the past six weeks, 25 prescription orders were scheduled and delivered to Vancouver residents as part of this program.
The Vancouver Police Department is seeking applicants for Entry and Lateral Police officers. Those interested in a career with the department, can visit https://www.cityofvancouver.us/police/page/how-do-i-become-vancouver-police-officer.
