The Vancouver Police Department has officially welcomed 10,000 new workers to the force : worker bees, that is.

Two bee hives have arrived at a community garden at police headquarters – as part of a program involving a non-profit organization.

Three veiled beekeepers carried the buzzing hives through the lobby at HQ for their first day on the job – joining the Vancouver department’s 2,000 employees and volunteers.

The hives will be funded and maintained by volunteers from the department and trained beekeepers from Hives for Humanity.

Sgt. Randy Fincham says there are many similarities between beekeeping and policing – because if people treat each other with respect “nobody gets stung.”
