Vancouver Police have taken to Twitter to show their support for colleague Meghan Agosta — who is a constable in the department, as well as being a forward on Canada's Olympic women's hockey team.

Meghan Agosta was in the spotlight at a critical moment in the gold medal game on Thursday, when her final shot in the shootout failed to make it past the U.S. goalie.

Agosta has been with the VPD since 2014 — and the department was quick to show its support.

"That was some impressive hockey ladies!" the VPD posted on its twitter account.

"We're all proud of you," said Chief Adam Palmer of Agosta: police constable by day, Olympic hockey forward by night
