THE Surrey RCMP Gang Enforcement Team (SGET) has undertaken numerous checks, drug investigations and vehicle seizures over the last 13 days of targeted enforcement against gang activity in Surrey.
Surrey RCMP said on Tuesday that they are currently engaged in an action plan designed to disrupt and suppress gang activity in the city. This action plan was implemented in response to the increase in gang related violence across the region earlier this month.
Between January 11 and 24, the Surrey RCMP Gang Enforcement Team (SGET) conducted:
– 26 establishment checks for the Inadmissible Patron Program (IPP)
– 11 curfew checks of Lower Mainland Gang Conflict participants currently living in Surrey
– 28 Outlaw Motorcycle Gang clubhouse checks
– 11 drug investigations that resulted in the seizure of five vehicles
– Enhanced police presence at three funerals of individuals connected to the Lower Mainland Gang Conflict to ensure the safety of attendees.
“Violent crime and gang violence continues to remain a priority for Surrey RCMP,” said Inspector Mike Hall, Surrey RCMP Proactive Enforcement Officer. “We will continue our efforts to suppress gang activity in our community and provide ongoing updates on our efforts.”
Surrey RCMP has also maintained enhanced communications with all regional gang units and offers multiple youth and family programs focusing on gang prevention. For more information on all of these programs, visit the Surrey RCMP website.
