Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment Seeks Citizen Input

RCMP is asking for your opinion on various aspects of the service provided by RCMP in the Upper Fraser Valley

The RCMP is asking for your opinion! On now and running for two weeks, citizens across the Upper Fraser Valley can give the local RCMP Detachment input via an anonymous online survey.

The Regional Detachment is offering the survey as a means of reaching out to the communities it serves, and for citizens views on various aspects of the service provided by the RCMP in the Upper Fraser Valley.

“We value the opinions of the general public,” says Detachment Commander Superintendent Deanne Burleigh. “And we’re interested in knowing about community priorities and concerns, as we make plans to shape our service in the future.”
The survey is part of the preparation of a new Strategic Plan for the Regional Detachment. The Strategic Plan provides the ‘road map’ for the Detachment, assisting with decision-making about where and how to use resources to best serve community needs.
“This is about our local communities,” says Supt. Burleigh. “We know there are provincial and national issues in the news about the RCMP, and these are ongoing and important priorities. However this process focuses on our service to communities in the Fraser Valley where we are the local police department.”
The survey is available online until April 24, 2015. It is completely anonymous, and the answers are submitted to an independent third party who will provide the RCMP with a summary report of the responses. Results of the survey will be shared with the media and there will also be presentations to community partners later this year.

The survey consists of nine brief questions on policing, crime and public safety in the Upper Fraser Valley. Members of the public can access the survey by going online to:

Anyone who resides, works or attends school in the UFVRD service area is invited to participate and share their views.  The Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment area includes all areas from Chilliwack to Boston Bar including Agassiz, Harrison, Hope, and the Fraser Valley Regional District.

A link to the survey is also available on the bc.rcmp.ca website.
