VANCOUVER Police said on Saturday evening that they did not have any major incidents reported to them during this year’s 4/20 event at Sunset Beach. However, police were kept busy managing the crowd throughout the event.
Just before 4:30 p.m., the crowd peaked to approximately 60,000 people and there were about 400 vendor tents set up at Sunset Beach.
“Today was a good example of remarkable teamwork between the Vancouver Police, fellow first responders, the Vancouver Park Board, and the City of Vancouver, allowing for a safe environment during a large scale event,” said Sgt. Jason Robillard.
VPD officers assisted BC Emergency Health Services with more than 14 medical emergencies. Traffic enforcement officers issued more than 30 tickets and investigated three people for impaired driving.
