Crime is top of mind for many in the city – but it’s not all bad news. This community has a host of people, professionals, programs and policies that are working to make a positive impact on public safety.
Among them: Anti-gang initiatives; volunteer block watches; business bike patrols; youth intervention programs; crime-prevention sessions for renters; take-back-the-community projects; neighbourhood advocates; and RCMP strategies.
For 2015, The Leader’s annual Surrey in Focus publication explores some of these crime-fighting tactics. Links to the stories are provided below.
