Recently, the Surrey RCMP and the City of Surrey held a special ceremony to honour the city’s dedicated auxiliary constable volunteers.

More than 60 auxiliary constables were recognized for their valuable contributions to community safety and crime reduction. Dignitaries and special guests were in attendance including senior officers of the Surrey RCMP, the Mayor of Surrey and city councillors.

“The quality of our auxiliary constable Program and the difference these individuals make in our communities is immeasurable,” said Surrey RCMP Officer in Charge Chief Superintendent Bill Fordy. “Auxiliary constables are a valuable presence to our officers on the road and to any crime prevention activities we are involved in.”

“The Auxiliary Constable Program is an integral part of the city’s commitment to crime reduction and community safety,” says City of Surrey Mayor Linda Hepner. “We are very fortunate to have such a diverse group of citizens who represent the community they serve. On behalf of the City of Surrey, I thank these outstanding volunteers for their tremendous dedication.”

In total, the Surrey RCMP’s Auxiliary Constables contributed more than 23,000 volunteer hours in 2014. Two auxiliary constables volunteered more than 700 hours and ten volunteered over 500 hours.

The Auxiliary Constable Program in Surrey remains the largest in Canada. Auxiliary Constables are uniformed volunteers under the command of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

They participate in community policing activities in support of public safety and crime prevention.
