Below is what I believe to be a common sense 15-point plan to fight crime. 1) Hire new Surrey RCMP police officers to keep pace with population growth and the needs of the city. 2) The Surrey RCMP force needs to be diverse and representative of the community it serves to build trust and integrity with the population. 3) Surrey needs to compare the number of police officers per capita with other comparable cities in Canada and around the world. An analysis of cities that have low crime rates needs to be completed and similar strategies can be applied...Read More
