he Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment (UFVRD) RCMP is beginning its public input process to determine the community priorities in relation to Crime and Public Safety.


RCMP Detachments are mandated to create strategic priorities which reflect the concerns and issues of their specific communities and to assist with this we seek out the community opinion on a variety of Policing issues.  To facilitate this, the RCMP will be holding a series of public forums; one in each of the four communities comprising the UFVRD (Chilliwack, Agassiz, Hope and Boston Bar).

On Monday, March 3rd 2014 a Public Forum will be held at the District of Kent Municipal Hall, 7170 Cheam Avenue, Agassiz. The forum will start at 6:00 p.m. and is open to the citizens of Agassiz, Harrison Mills, Popkum and the Sts’ ailes, Scowlitz, Cheam, and Seabird First Nations.

“We look forward to engaging the members of each of these communities. We need to hear what their specific concerns are so we can address them” advises Cpl.Len vanNieuwnhuizen.  “It is important that we keep our lines of communications open”.

To learn more and register for the forum please contact the Agassiz RCMP at Ph. 604-796-2211. Registration will also be accepted at the door prior to the meeting.
