The Surrey Policing Transition Report is completed and has been delivered to the provincial government for review and approval.

“The completion of the Policing Transition Report is a landmark moment for the City of Surrey as it marks an important step in bringing local accountability to the citizens of Surrey,” said Mayor Doug McCallum. “The creation of a Surrey Police Department was one of two major initiatives unanimously passed by Council on the night we were sworn in and, this morning, Council has had the opportunity to view the full report. I want to thank Surrey City staff, the City of Vancouver and the Vancouver Police Department for their work on the transition document. I am confident that our plan fully details how we will successfully transition to a city police department and I look forward to hearing back from the Solicitor General. With the report now in the hands of the provincial government we are moving ahead with our public engagement sessions. I urge our residents to come out and help us shape their Surrey Police Department.”
