Integrated Road Safety Unit - IRSU

IRSU Police Car

The Integrated Road Safety Unit, more commonly known as IRSU, was formed in 2004 and is made up of over 100 traffic enforcement officers from the RCMP and Municipal Police agencies across the Province. Currently, IRSU is divided into two separate units; Greater Vancouver IRSU and Fraser Valley IRSU.

IRSU’s mandate is to reduce harm on BC roadways. This is accomplished by conducting strategic traffic enforcement in high collision areas in order to reduce the number of serious injury and fatal collisions on our roads. IRSU also focuses on the high-risk driving behaviours (seatbelt compliance, speed, impaired, aggressive and distracted driving) which contribute to the most carnage on our roadways. IRSU also focuses criminal interdiction and commercial vehicle enforcement.

The IRSU units were formed to support the E Division Road Safety Vision 2010 initiative. The officers were chosen as they are committed to making British Columbia Road the safest in the world.
