Description:
The South Coast British Columbia Transportation Authority Police Service (SCBCTAPS) (commonly referred to as Transit Police Service, formerly Greater Vancouver Transportation Authority Police Service) is the police force for TransLink, the public transit system of the Metro Vancouver area of British Columbia, Canada. Formed in December 2005, the SCBCTAPS is the only urban public transit police force in Canada who are police officers with full peace officers status and armed on duty. SCBCTAPS is a supplementary police agency with the jurisdictional police agency retaining primary responsibility for policing in each jurisdiction they serve.

SCBCTAPS Officers can enforce all Criminal Code of Canada infractions in British Columbia, however, they focus their efforts primarily on protecting the safety and security of passengers, employees and property of Metro Vancouver's transit system, operated by TransLink.

SCBCTAPS partners with local municipal police forces and Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) in enforcing laws in the Metro Vancouver region. If requested, SCBCTAPS officers will also respond to emergencies outside of TransLink properties as would other municipal police forces.

The name change was made pursuant to the Greater Vancouver Transportation Authority Amendment Act 2007, effective November 30, 2007. However, references to SCBCTAPS as GVTAPS will continue to have legal effect.
