LETTER: Leave RCMP to do their work


The RCMP did a superb job in apprehending the accused Surrey transit shooting suspect.

They were thorough, professional and efficient in the way that they did it. I am sure that mayor and council were kept apprised and updated of all progress and developments during their search.

Police also did a good job last week of capturing the alleged USA murderer at the Peace Arch Hospital.

Kudos to them. The RCMP are doing, and have always done, a great job of keeping us safe in Surrey.

We do not need, nor do we want a different police force in Surrey, whatever your personal motives may be in wanting to change them out for a muncipal force more subservient to you, Mr. Mayor.

Leave them be and let them get on with what they do a great job of.

Give them the resources, finances and manpower that they both need and ask for in order for them to maintain and improve on the services that they provide us. There are a growing number of our Surrey citizens that are of the same mindset as I and will oppose all attempts by you to remove the RCMP from Surrey.

Ivan Michael Scott, Surrey
