Surrey RCMP announces second series of Neighbourhood Safety Presentations

SURREY RCMP’s five district commanders will be hosting the second series of Neighbourhood Safety Presentations between May 20 and May 28 at local Surrey schools.

In January, Surrey RCMP launched the Neighbourhood Safety Campaign to provide residents with greater access to the information they need to mobilize their community and enhance safety in their neighbourhood. The first series of Neighbourhood Safety Presentations was attended by over 500 residents.

“For crime prevention to be truly effective, it requires a coordinated effort between residents and police,” says Staff Sgt. Scott Campbell, Acting Community Services Officer. “We are looking forward to connecting with more residents and addressing crime concerns in those areas.”

Each Neighbourhood Safety Presentation provides residents with information on local crime trends, current policing initiatives, property crime, and how to report crime and suspicious activity. Attendees will also learn how they can play a role in crime prevention.

Upcoming Neighbourhood Safety Presentations:

* Bridgeview Neighbourhood – May 20 at Bridgeview Elementary (6:30 p.m.)

* Greenaway / Cowtown Neighbourhood – May 21 at George Greenaway Elementary (6:30 p.m.)

* Semiahmoo Neighbourhood – May 26 at Semiahmoo Secondary (6:30 p.m.)

* Boliver Heights Neighbourhood – May 27 at James Ardiel Elementary (6:30 p.m.)

* Chimney Heights Neighbourhood – May 28 at Chimney Hill Elementary (6:30 p.m.)
