$50K for Surrey’s safety

Trigate Development Corp. donates to Surrey Crime Prevention Society.

A longtime Surrey company has made what’s believed to be the largest donation in the city’s history dedicated solely to enhancing community safety.

Trigate Development Corp. gave a $50,000 gift to Surrey Crime Prevention Society (SCPS) May 6. The money will go toward the society’s recently announced expansion of community safety programs.

“With the on-going challenges rapidly growing cities face, Surrey needs those of us who have built our businesses here to step up and do our part in preventing crime and building a stronger community,” said George A. Tsakumis, president and CEO of Trigate, a property development company. “I salute all those tireless and brave volunteers with the Surrey Crime Prevention Society, who give of themselves in aid and protection of others.”

Karen Reid Sidhu, executive director of SCPS, said the donation will also help ensure the safety of the society’s volunteers by purchasing  new equipment.

“Our volunteers contributed over 28,000 hours towards the enhancement of community safety in the City of Surrey in 2014,” she said.
