Surrey RCMP supt Sullivan Presentation photoSurrey: Approx. 170 residents of the Sullivan community turned out for the Surrey RCMP’s first neighbourhood Engagement Presentation as part of its new Neighbourhood Safety Campaign.

Sullivan residents heard from Officer in Charge, C/Supt Bill Fordy, about current policing initiatives in their area, followed by presentations on auto theft and reporting crime, and a question and answer period with C/Supt Fordy. Those in attendance were also introduced to their local Newton District Commander, Sgt Marc Searle, who discussed ways that residents can get involved in making their neighbourhoods safer.

“I am grateful to the community of Sullivan for their openness to this new initiative,” says C/Supt Fordy. “I am committed to improving the Surrey RCMP’s proactive engagement with Surrey communities and Sullivan has shown that Surrey residents are eager to have these open dialogues with police.”

The presentation was the first in a series of Engagement Presentations designed to address crime concerns in specific neighbourhoods, and provide residents with information to mobilize their community and enhance safety in their neighbourhood.

Residents were happy to have the opportunity to connect with officers face-to-face (photo attached).

 

“Thanks so much! I love to see the police connect with the community with an information evening such as this,” said one attendee.
