The focus of the Abbotsford Police Department is on partnerships with the community. As a result, the members and staff of the Abbotsford Police Department are pleased to expand our network of partners through the Internet. We have proudly served with the community since 1955 when we were named the Matsqui Police Department. On January 1, 1995, the municipalities of Matsqui and Abbotsford amalgamated to be called the City of Abbotsford and the name of the Department changed to the Abbotsford Police Department. We have much to take pride in; our innovative and dynamic approach to visible proactive crime control, our longstanding partnership with our community and the low crime rate in our city. I want to thank the great citizens of Abbotsford for their participation in policing our community, and as well, the dedicated people who make up the Abbotsford Police Department, for without them we could not enjoy our first-rate reputation.
