The 9 PM routine encourages everyone to routinely check their vehicle each night by 9 PM. By doing so, you are doing your part to ensure your vehicle is safe and secure, and that all valuables have been removed.

IMPACT operates and manages the Bait Car Program across the Greater Vancouver area, Vancouver Island, the BC Interior, and the North — boasting a substantial and long-standing fleet. For nearly two decades, this program has been a vital component of our commitment to enhancing community safety. While the Vancouver Police Department runs an independent bait car program within the City of Vancouver, IMPACT extends its reach by providing bait cars to the surrounding sixteen municipalities.
