Surrey BC PD

Postby Tango5 » Thu Apr 11, 2019 6:48 pm

Most of you have probably heard of the push by Surrey’s Mayor to create a municipal police force and saying ‘thank tou’ to RCMP. It seems that the Mayor is strong at it.
I find the timing and steps mentioned in the below article interesting. Seems like a tone of opportunity if this gets a provincial green light.

A lot of things have to happen and a lot of people have to approve before anything will proceed.
If you choose Law Enforcement you LOSE the right to be unfit.

Yup. There is no way (if it even happens) that it will be up and running by 2020. There are waaaay to many moving parts for this to happen in such a short time frame.

Exactly why I posted the article, to get the thoughts of the community.

For one, how do you hire/train/lateral over 850 members in ... 1 year. (JI can handle so manny classes, what about RFT)
Two, even if the plan is to only start with whatever they can get and have two services run parallel, the cost would be astronomical.
Third, would the less paid members (considering current pay) be willing to work with/train their obvious replacements.

I would think the starting point is:
- # of Police Officer members you want Surrey PS to employ = # of Surrey RCMP POM x 1.25 per rank;
- annual salary for Surrey PS POM = RCMP POM salary x 1.1 per rank;
- initial cost to transition from Surrey paying for RCMP contract to paying for its own PS = above x 2.0.
