The District 4 office of the Surrey RCMP has welcomed a new District Commander.
Staff/Sgt. Shirley Steele originally opened the first community policing office in Cloverdale in 1991.
She brings a wealth of experience in community policing and crime prevention to her new role as District Commander of the Cloverdale/Port Kells district office, located at 5732 176A Street in Surrey.
Steele comes from E Division headquarters, where she worked on the research side of community policing. In Cloverdale, she’ll be expected to be an expert on local crime trends, and will consult with individuals, groups and business on an ongoing basis.
At the Cloverdale District Chamber of Commerce luncheon Dec. 14, Steele and her staff were thanked for their support in making this year’s Halloween Costume Parade a success. More than 750 children participated.
