June 29, 2020 was an historic day in Surrey. The Province of BC announced the members of the inaugural Surrey Police Board.

With this announcement the Board is now formally established, and the policing transition moves into an exciting new phase.  This is an historic shift in how policing services will be delivered in Surrey and will build on the important contribution that the Surrey RCMP has made to Surrey over the last several decades.

Recent events have highlighted the importance of local accountability and civilian oversight in policing. In BC there are strong accountability systems in place that ensure civilian oversight and the Board will provide this for the Surrey Police. The Board will build a innovative, modern and proactive police service to that reflects the dynamic, urban community it serves and implements new approaches to policing to build safety for our community with participation from all our citizens.

Over the coming weeks the Board will receive orientation and training to support them in assuming their new responsibilities.  They will then begin to formally meet. One of the Board’s first critical tasks is to appoint the Chief Constable and the Executive Team.
