Surrey Crime Prevention Society reinventing itself

Group is realigning itself closer to the goals of the City of Surrey.

The Surrey Crime Prevention Society is realigning itself with the city's goals.

The Surrey Crime Prevention Society (SCPS) is realigning its goals to match those of the city.

Karen Reid Sidhu has been recently named as the executive director for the SCPS and said it’s time to take the society in a new direction.

“We were more focused on crime prevention rather than community safety,” Sidhu said. “So we rebranded all of our programs with the new focus on community safety.”

She said that involves more than just crime prevention, but deals with the community as a whole.

Programs will be expanded to include illegal dumping, metal theft, city beautification and expansion of the SCPS anti graffiti program.

“What we’re doing is public awareness and education, but we’re also doing observation and reporting,” Sidhu said. “So anything we observe in the community, we report it.”
