What is this about?

The Surrey Police Vote started as a citizens Initiative petition asking the Province of B.C to hold a binding referendum on the proposed police transition so Surrey residents finally get to have their say.

The Surrey Police Service is a very expensive proposal for taxpayers – who are already pinched after big property tax increases and the pandemic. We still don’t know the plan, or all the costs and we deserve that information and deserve to decide on whether or not to continue.

The Mayor and his team are ignoring questions and concerns from residents and taxpayers, and not being transparent on costs on top of missing multiple deadlines.

In 2020, we successfully collected 42,942 signatures calling for a policing referendum, sending a strong message to the Province and Surrey City Council. Stay tuned for the next steps for the Surrey Police Vote by following our social media accounts and signing up for our mailing list.

Thank you,

Firstly, for my late husband Paul. His case is still active and ongoing. I want to make sure that this transition does not compromise his right to justice. All the families affected by violent crime in this City deserve to have transparency and accountability from the Mayor and Council. 

I sent a letter in August 2020 to the Surrey Police Service Board asking for some clarification on a few questions I had. They responded with a “tweet”. I feel a more respectful response was needed.

I trust the Surrey RCMP. I have always found my interactions with them to be very professional. At least they tell me what I can and cannot know and why.    

Secondly, I am a taxpayer in Surrey. I don’t understand why we are all being kept in the dark. This is public safety:  it is a right. It involves everyone. How can you have any faith or trust in this process, when you don’t know what you’re getting, or how much you are going to have to pay?

The people of Surrey deserve to have a voice, they deserve to have the facts and they deserve to be heard by the Province and Surrey City Council. Hopefully, this initiative will allow that.
