Vancouver Police officer heading to fourth Olympics on Canada’s Women’s Hockey team


Meghan Agosta is known to the Vancouver Police Department as a woman who leads a double life. She’s an acclaimed hockey player bound for her fourth Olympics on Team Canada, and she’s a VPD Constable.

Agosta, 30, first played in the Olympic Winter Games in 2006 in Turin.

“With nine goals and six assists, she was the top scorer at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games and was voted Most Valuable Player and Best Forward as well as being named to the Media All-Star Team,” notes Agosta’s Team Canada Bio.

The Ontario native went on to play in the 2014 Sochi games, then put her hockey career on pause to focus on her police career. Agosta joined the VPD as a probationary constable in the fall of 2014, then graduated from the VPD Academy the following spring when she was sworn in as a member of the force.

With the 2018 PyeongChang games on the horizon again, Agosta has been focusing again on her life on ice, and on December 22 she was named once again to Team Canada.

Her colleagues at the VPD are among the many Canadians who are proud of Agosta:
