A MESSAGE FROM OUR EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR - 2020
The Covid-19 pandemic brought challenges to many organizations including ours. We briefly put our programs on hold for the safety of our volunteers and staff and, after careful review, we introduced strict Covid-19 safety protocols to accommodate the safety of our volunteers while supporting programs in Surrey.
Throughout 2020, our volunteers supported our many programs while developing strong alliances with our community partners to ensure a cohesive approach to public safety. With the support of our amazing staff and volunteers, we have successfully delivered community safety programs resulting in superior outcomes. The goals of SCPS are aligned with the goals of our community partners resulting in a comprehensive and cohesive commitment for a safe and livable community.
Over the past six years, 2,357 volunteers generously contributed 159,800 hours of service, delivering a variety of community safety programs throughout Surrey. It is with tremendous pride and gratitude we celebrate the accomplishments of our amazing volunteers and dedicated staff. Our volunteers continue to deliver exceptional results while supporting our community safety programs. Ensuring our volunteers achieve excellence through personal and professional growth is a tremendous honor to witness. These individuals move onto careers in public service achieving the ultimate milestone, with this year being no exception.
Thank you to our valued sponsors, community partners and members who recognize the commitment of our volunteers and staff. Working in collaboration with the City of Surrey has enabled us to maximize our opportunities by aligning our resources to support the goals of the City. We continue to identify new opportunities working with Surrey Schools and other community partners to support youth.
