Public safety meetings coming to a Surrey neighbourhood near you

Each meeting provides information on local crime trends, current policing initiatives, property crimes and how to report crime.

Policing overtime costs ran $4.6 million over budget in total over a three year period.

SURREY — Surrey Mounties have released their latest in a series of public safety meetings tailor-made to the needs of specific neighbourhoods.

The RCMP’s Neighborhood Safety Campaign began in January and so far roughly 700 people have attended 10 presentations.

“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,” said Supt. Shawn Gill. “Our hope is that more residents will take proactive steps towards being the change they want to see in their neighborhoods.”

The third series of meetings will be held October 13-29 at elementary schools throughout the city. Each meeting provides residents with information on local crime trends, current policing initiatives, property crimes and how to report crime.

Here is where the next round of meetings will be held: Boundary Park Neighbourhood, Oct. 13 at Boundary Park Elementary; Whalley/City Centre Neighbourhood, Oct. 14 at David Brankin Elementary; Guildford Neighbourhood, Oct. 15 at Bonaccord Elementary; South Meridian Neighbourhood, Oct. 28 at South Meridian Elementary; Cloverdale Neighbourhood, Oct. 29 at Martha Currie Elementary.

All meetings begin at 6:30 p.m.
