  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    Based on the recommendations of the recently completed RCMP Police Services Review, the City of Pitt Meadows is considering forming an autonomous Pitt Meadows RCMP Detachment that would enhance public safety.

    An independent RCMP detachment would allow for greater accountability and services tailored to our community needs.
