Abbotsford, BC – The Abbotsford Police Department, City Council and the Abbotsford Police Board will hold a public forum on community safety on Thursday, September 10, 2015, from 7:00 -9:00 pm at the Abbotsford Arts Centre located at 2329 Crescent Way.
“I believe an important next step in creating a solution to the very troubling and highly publicized violent incidents occurring in our community is for us to come together as a community to build those solutions. I am confident that together we will accomplish far more if we focus collective efforts.” – Mayor Henry Braun
“The APD will continue to deal with the ongoing conflict and threat to public safety as a top priority. We are putting in place a gang enforcement team whose sole purpose is to deal with the issues in the Townline Hill area. We will not stop until public safety is restored.” – Chief Bob Rich
The City and APD welcome all concerned residents to this forum. The maximum capacity of the Abbotsford Arts Centre is 739 and we will strictly adhere to these regulations for safety purposes. People are encouraged to arrive early.
