Spring is in the air! Surrey Crime Prevention Society is looking for volunteers to support our Community Safety Volunteer Tours, Speed Watch Programs and Citizen's Community Safety Watch Program.
Community Safety Volunteer Tours walk or cycle designated areas in pairs to observe and report suspicious activities. Volunteers are issued equipment such as bicycles, two-way radios and reflective visibility jackets. Volunteers never get involved in situations, but observe and report from a safe distance. Volunteers are expected to commit for a minimum of one year at one two hour shift per week.
Speed Watch Volunteers work with a team and set up a speed reader board that tracks vehicles driving at excessive speeds in playground areas, school zones and high risk crash sites. This program assists with traffic and speeding issues through data collection and public awareness. Volunteers gain valuable experience and perspective through traffic safety initiatives and are invited to Speed Watch training events throughout the year. Volunteers are expected to commit for a four hour shift once a month - weather permitting.
Citizen's Community Safety Watch Volunteers are the "extra eyes and ears" of the City of Surrey. Volunteers tour designated areas by car and observe and report on 'suspicious' activities. Volunteers may be equipped with two-way radios, SCPS high-res visibility vests and binoculars (may include night-visions versions). Volunteers are expected to commit to one shift per month from 8:00 pm - 2:00 am.
