  • Page Views 337
  • Surrey, BC – At last night’s Regular Council Meeting, Surrey Council received its first
    monthly Progress Report on maintaining the RCMP as Police of Jurisdiction (POJ). The
    Progress Report updates the status of the restaffing plan, confirming the following:

    • 15 Surrey Police Service (SPS) Officers are in the hiring process or already hired
    • 81 SPS Officers have indicated they will join the RCMP
    • 8 RCMP cadets are joining the detachment by August 2023
    • 2 Experienced Police Officers are transferring to the Surrey RCMP.

    “I am pleased to see Surrey RCMP’s restaffing plan is well underway, and I welcome
    the SPS members who have chosen to continue their policing careers in Surrey with the
    RCMP,” said Mayor Brenda Locke. “The City is committed to working with the Province
    and the SPS to meet the Minister’s binding conditions as we return to a single Police of
    Jurisdiction in Surrey with the RCMP. It is time to move forward and do what’s right for
    our City, what’s right for taxpayers, and what’s right for future generations.”

    On June 15, 2023, Mayor Locke announced the decision of Council to maintain the
    RCMP as POJ in Surrey following consideration of a confidential report prepared by
    staff. On June 19, 2023, following Council direction, staff’s confidential report was
    forwarded to the Province for review. Staff are currently working with all parties to
    prepare a redacted version of the confidential report. The redacted version will be
    released to the public once completed.
