Up close with the Surrey RCMP

Mounties host open house at main detachment on May 9.

The Surrey RCMP will kick off Police Week (May 7-11) with an opportunity for the public to check out the main detachment and learn a little more about the services provided.

The May 9 event is free and is to include police “briefings” for kids, patrol cars on display, food, and demonstrations by Air 1, Police Dog Services and forensics (based on availability). RCMP and City of Surrey career information will also be available, along with a chance to have photos taken with officers in Red Serge.

“We look forward to meeting everyone at this family event,” Surrey RCMP Officer in Charge Chief Superintendent Bill Fordy, said in a news release. “Events such as this help us strengthen the bonds we have with our community, which is key to enhancing public safety.”

The open house is set for noon to 3 p.m. The main detachment is located at 14355 57 Ave.
