In February, 1998, a group of concerned and motivated members of the policing community created the Diversity Network Committee. In 2001 the committee received acknowledgement from the B.C. Association of Chiefs of Police (BCACP) and became a sub-committee. It was then renamed the B.C. Police and Diversity Network. In order for the Network to be more inclusive it was renamed the B.C. Law Enforcement Diversity Network in 2005.
