I am pleased to share with you the Surrey RCMP’s 2021 Report to the Community, which provides an overview of the Surrey RCMP’s response to public safety issues and crime trends. The work and accomplishments detailed in this report are thanks to our great team of police officers and support staff.
In 2021, Surrey RCMP celebrated a milestone anniversary, 70 years of service to the community. I want to thank each of you for your tremendous support, partnership and outstanding contributions to public safety in our city. It is truly my honour to serve as Surrey’s Officer-in-Charge.

I want to introduce myself as the new District 2 (Guildford) Liaison Officer (10395 148th st, Surrey) with the Surrey RCMP. As a Filipino, I wanted to reach out to my community leaders and possibly hold a short meeting where we can discuss the issues and problems we are having specific to our community. I also wanted to be a point of contact who the community can reach out to should they want to speak to an officer but are having a difficult time with explaining the issues and need someone who speaks the language (Tagalog). I hope to hear from you soon.

Fraser Heights Community Association
Cpl. Darryl Vanderstoep (Acting Sgt) of the Community Response unit issued the following media release on behalf of the RCMP.
File # 2022-35427
Surrey RCMP is investigating the arson of two vehicles parked in a Fraser Heights driveway and seeking witnesses.
On March 11, 2022, at 2:40 a.m., Surrey RCMP received a request from Surrey Fire Service to assist with a vehicle fire in the driveway of a residence located in the 17700-block of 101 Avenue. Police attended and determined that two vehicles were damaged by fire, which was extinguished by firefighters.
The Surrey RCMP Arson Coordinator and the Surrey Fire Inspector were both engaged early on in the investigation. Based on an inspection it was determined that the vehicles were intentionally lit on fire. Although this incident appears to be targeted, a motive has not yet been determined and the vehicle owners are not known to police.
Investigators canvassed the immediate area for witnesses and video. Video located showed two suspects arriving on foot and departing northbound through a footpath toward 101A Avenue. It appeared that one of the suspects inadvertently lit themselves on fire, so they may have sustained some injuries.
We understand that members of the community have questions and concerns about an arson occurring in their neighborhood, says Surrey RCMP Media relations Officer, Corporal Vanessa Munn Our investigators are actively working to collect evidence that would enable them to answer those questions. We are asking that any members of the community, who have any information, witnessed anything suspicious, or may have video surveillance from the area to contact police.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-8477 or www.solvecrime.ca.
