Oak Bay Police is one of the first police departments in Canada to use QR Codes.
The Oak Bay Police Department has implemented quick response codes, commonly known as QR codes. A QR code is like a bar code that is readable by many smart phones. The codes will often take people to websites with more information about products or services. The QR code developed for the Oak Bay Police, when scanned, will take people to the department’s website. The codes have been placed on our police vehicles and police post on Oak Bay Avenue in front of the municipal hall.
The Oak Bay Police is committed to moving forward in utilizing social media tools to promote education, communication and to enhance our visibility in the community.
