With the holiday season upon us, I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a wonderful festive season. This time of year can be a busy for emergency responders and so I encourage everyone to enjoy the holidays responsibly. Take the necessary precautions, especially on our roadways.
I would also like to thank the citizens of Surrey for their support and commitment to making Surrey a great place to live and work. The people in this city truly care about public safety and we have been pleased to work with so many of you throughout the year.
As a resident of Surrey, a father, and your officer in charge, I am proud of the work we are doing together and look forward to connecting with more of you in the year ahead as we increase our community engagement and mobilization initiatives.
Each December, some of our police officers share their “Mountie Wish” for the community through our social media. My Mountie Wish is for every citizen of Surrey to take some time and give back to the community in whatever form they can to make someone else’s holidays that much brighter.
As always, emergency personnel will be working throughout the holidays to maintain community safety (please note the holiday hours for district offices and front counter services).
On behalf of all of us at the Surrey detachment, best wishes for a safe and relaxing holiday season.
W.C. (Bill) Fordy, Chief Superintendent
