Volunteers participate in a variety of crime prevention programs and play a key role at events across the city, hosting Surrey RCMP information booths and providing public safety information.
This past year, volunteers donated over 43,000 hours of their time to Surrey RCMP community initiatives. Volunteers checked over 150,000 vehicles at targeted locations through Speed Watch, ran 70,000 license plates through the Stolen Auto Recovery Program, conducted 9,000 vehicle audits through the Lock Out Auto Crime program, and made 1,200 visits to local businesses.
