Upper Fraser Valley RCMP ask for input on policing priorities

The public is invited to take an online survey or talk face-to-face at several open houses

The RCMP’s Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment (UFVRD) is asking for your input as they work on a three-year strategic plan that will cover 2023 to 2025.

UFVRD has community police offices in Chilliwack, Hope, Agassiz and Boston Bar and you’re invited to share your thoughts on policing priorities.

“As a regional detachment, we are responsible for providing high quality policing service for each of these municipalities and their surrounding areas, which include 23 First Nations,” an RCMP news release said. “Your voice matters. This strategic planning process includes a comprehensive community engagement process to seek input from citizens and stakeholders on policing and safety concerns in our communities.

“Information collected will be shared with our communities and will help to identify and develop the priorities, goals, objectives and actions of the UFVRD.”

There are several opportunities to be heard starting with an online survey that’s available now through April 7, 2023 at
