Since 2016 the Vancouver Police Department's Use of Force instruction for new recruits has included judo which Rotary Peace Fellow Constable Bryan Nykon has been providing as instructor. Having completed his Rotary-funded Master's degree program at the University of Bradford in the United Kingdom in 2011, through a Rotary Peace Fellowship, Bryan has been instrumental in bringing conflict resolution principles into police training. He has been developing and implementing use of force training for all VPD officers.  
Bryan Nykon is also an instructor in Conflict Resolution at Langara College in Vancouver and judo instructor at Steveston Judo Club in Richmond.
Bryan's instructional program at VPD is featured in a recent edition of Canada's Law Enforcement Magazine, Blueline.
