Board directors do not receive a salary, and instead receive per diems. This is not designed to compensate a Board director for actual hours worked, but is rather a stipend to cover out-of-pocket and incidental expenses in the course of carrying out their duties. The Mayor, as Chair, is not eligible to receive a per diem.

Employees of the Board office receive a salary, and both this and the Board Director per diems are paid out of the Vancouver Police Department’s overall budget.
