Vancouver Police Dept. launches website to ID Stanley Cup rioters

The Vancouver Police Department's Integrated Riot Investigation Team (IRIT) has launched a Riot 2011 Website featuring photographs of suspected rioters during the June 15 Stanley Cup riots in Vancouver.

They're asking for the public's help in identifying the suspected rioters allegedly committing criminal acts. Business owners, staff and the public are asked to ID suspects by viewing photos taken from surveillance video. New photos will be uploaded regularly, along with investigative updates and other information.

Rioters can call 604.349.9947 to turn themselves in.

The VPD is planning a Vancouver town hall meeting in the future, geared for business owners and operators, where they will provide updates and take input.
