Surrey Police Service


Surrey Police will be a modern, urban and community responsive police service designed from day one to address the needs of Surrey.

As a local police service, it is governed by a civilian Police Board appointed by the Province of BC and will be led by a Chief Constable appointed by the Board.

Recent events have highlighted the importance of local accountability and civilian oversight in policing. With authorities defined under the BC Police Act [RSBC 1996], the Chief and the Board provide policing services to the community.

The journey to establish an independent local police service began in 2018 and culminated in the motion of the Surrey Police Board at its inaugural meeting on August 6, 2020 to create the Surrey Police Service. Work now begins in earnest to put in place the necessary people and infrastructure to begin operation of the new local police service.
