Surrey Police Board Media Release

The Surrey Police Board congratulates Mayor-elect Brenda Locke and all the successful council candidates in yesterday’s civic election and wants to provide a full briefing to the Mayor-elect on the important role as Chair of the Surrey Police Board and the status of the policing transition process, as soon as possible.

“We know that the subject of policing was prevalent during the election period. The Board is looking forward to open communication with the Mayor-elect as soon as possible to highlight the extensive work that has taken place, regarding the transition from the RCMP to Surrey Police Service, under the direction of all three levels of government. Today there are more than 350 SPS staff members employed by the Surrey Police Board, and any change to Surrey’s police transition process would be determined by the provincial government. The Board is confident that the smooth transition to a municipal police service in Surrey will continue,” says Melissa Granum, Surrey Police Board Executive Director.

The Board would like to thank the civilian and sworn staff of Surrey Police Service for their continued professionalism during the election period.
