Surrey's crime reduction strategy

We're using an innovative problem-solving approach to address the root cause of crime. The approach is outlined in Surrey's Crime Reduction Strategy adopted in 2006. The Strategy has 106 recommendations, and has led to new programs and partnerships to address crime.

The Surrey RCMP, Surrey Fire Service, over 50 community groups, and 100 individuals, as well as all 3 levels of government, are involved in the Strategy to address crime in Surrey.

The Crime Reduction Strategy plays a key role in facilitating collaborative approaches to complex community safety and crime reduction issues and engages with many different City plans and strategies, like Plan for the Social Well-Being of Surrey Residents (the Social Plan), Energy & Sustainability, Parks, Recreation & Culture, Transportation and Surrey Libraries.

Check out key indicators and trends related to socio-economic status, housing, health and safety and education on the City of Surrey’s Sustainability Dashboard.
