RCMP public safety forums continue

As part of a Neighbourhood Safety Campaign, the Surrey RCMP is hosting a third series of safety presentations between Oct. 13 and 29 at local elementary schools across the city.

Since January 2015, Surrey RCMP has been organizing these events to inform residents about crime prevention and reduction strategies they can use in their own neighbourhoods. Ten presentations were held earlier this year and were attended by almost 700 residents.

“The feedback we received from past participants has shown us that residents are eager to have these open discussions with police and work together to address crime and nuisance issues,” says Supt. Shawn Gill, community services officer. “Our hope is that more residents will take proactive steps towards being the change they want to see in their neighbourhoods.”

Each neighbourhood safety presentation provides residents with information on local crime trends, current policing initiatives, property crime, and how to report crime and suspicious activity. Presentations will be hosted by the area’s district office commander and feature various speakers from Surrey RCMP detachment.

Upcoming Neighbourhood Safety Presentations:

  • Boundary Park Neighbourhood – Oct. 13 at Boundary Park Elementary (6:30 p.m.).
  • Whalley/City Centre Neighbourhood – Oct. 14  at David Brankin Elementary (6:30 p.m.).
  • Guildford Neighbourhood – Oct. 15  at Bonaccord Elementary (6:30 p.m.).
  • South Meridian Neighbourhood – Oct. 28  at South Meridian Elementary (6:30 p.m.).
  • Cloverdale Neighbourhood – Oct. 29  at Martha Currie Elementary (6:30 p.m.).

Pre-registration is not required, however if you would like more information on the Neighbourhood Safety Campaign, please contact your local District Office (visit www.surrey.rcmp.ca for contact info).
