SURREY RCMP announced on Tuesday that in order to ensure the continuing safety of their essential services staff during the COVID-19 pandemic, they will be temporarily closing two of their six front counter locations, effective at 5 p.m. on March 17.
Cpl. El Sturko said: “We have taken the measure of closing these particular front counters because they do not have a glass barrier at the service counter to protect the health of both our staff and the public. Police response in all areas will not be impacted and routine police operations will continue within these facilities. At this time, our front counters remain open at our City Centre, Guildford, Newton, and Main Detachment locations.”
She added: “The COVID-19 pandemic has generated the need for extraordinary consideration of the health and safety of Surrey residents and of our police officers, employees, volunteers and Auxiliaries. We appreciate the understanding of the public as we make these changes which will help to ensure we are able to continue to meet the public safety needs of the community throughout the on-going pandemic.’
