Statement from Assistant Commissioner Brian Edwards – Policing


2022-10-18 09:04 PDT

I’d like to extend my congratulations to the new Mayor and Council, elected by Surrey residents on October 15, 2022.

Throughout the municipal election, policing, and specifically the policing transition was one of the top issues discussed by the potential candidates.

Decisions around the City’s policing model are not for the Surrey RCMP to make, but rather fall within the purview of the elected Mayor and Council, the City of Surrey, and the Province of BC.

What does fall within the purview of the Surrey RCMP is public safety. Our top priority and primary focus as police of jurisdiction is to ensure public safety and deliver a professional policing service to all Surrey residents.

On behalf of the Surrey RCMP Senior Leadership Team, our police officers, staff and volunteers, we very much look forward to working with the newly elected Mayor and Council.

A/Commr Brian Edwards, Officer in Charge, Surrey RCMP
