Celebrating 60 years

The Surrey RCMP is inviting the public to attend a special ceremony marking the detachment’s 60 years of service on Sunday, May 1 at the Surrey Museum Square.

The ceremony will feature a marching parade by RCMP members in red serge, as well as comments by several dignitaries. The event begins at 2 p.m. and will last about an hour. The Surrey Museum is located at 17710 56A Ave.

On May 1, 1951, the RCMP took over municipal policing services for the City of Surrey. Surrey RCMP detachment has grown from 18 members in 1951 to more than 600 today.

• Also, don’t miss the upcoming RCMP exhibit at the Surrey Museum, on display May 20-23.

The exhibit will feature 10 display cases of Surrey RCMP artifacts and memorabilia, as well as timeline banners highlighting key dates in the detachment’s history.
