Join our team! Become a Surrey RCMP volunteer



Surrey RCMP is now accepting volunteer applications from individuals with a keen interest in public safety and making a positive difference through community and crime prevention programs.

Applications will be accepted from January 6 to February 28, 2019 through the Surrey RCMP website.

Volunteers participate in a variety of crime prevention programs and play a key role at events across the city, hosting Surrey RCMP information booths and providing public safety information.

"Over the past year, volunteers donated over 13,000 hours of their time to Surrey RCMP community initiatives,” says Gabriel Pelletier, Surrey RCMP Community Programs Coordinator. “Community policing is the best way to get involved in the safety of your city and we are so grateful for the invaluable contribution our volunteers make every day.”

In 2019, volunteers checked over 165,000 vehicles at targeted locations through Speed Watch, ran 400,000 license plates through the Stolen Auto Recovery Program, conducted 4,000 vehicle audits through the Lock Out Auto Crime program, and made 1,500 visits to local businesses.

“Our team of volunteers continue to assist us in delivering vital community programming,” says Inspector Wendy Mehat, Community Support & Safety Officer. “We are looking for dedicated individuals who can help us enhance public safety in Surrey.”

Many volunteers enjoy the different aspects of each program as it gives them an opportunity to have an immediate impact on reducing crime and improving public safety in their community.

“As a Surrey RCMP volunteer, my understanding of public safety has grown, and I have been able to give back to my community,” says volunteer Brahmroop Sandhu, 20 years old. “I particularly enjoy participating in the Speed Watch program and other traffic safety initiatives where I have the opportunity to help improve road safety.”

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer and being involved in promoting safety in your community, you are encouraged to look over the minimum requirements before applying online. These include:

• 19 years of age or older
• Canadian Citizen (or permanent resident for a minimum of 5 years)
• Valid Class 5 driver’s license
• Be reliable and have integrity
• Attend all required training sessions
• Volunteer a minimum of 16 hours per month for one year
• Pass a suitability interview
• Successfully pass a security background check

(Please note, only volunteer applications submitted online will be accepted).
