RICHMOND, October 22, 2014 - “Community Safety is a top priority for our team, and the community needs to be a part of it,” said Richmond Community Coalition’s Council candidate, Ken Johnston at a news conference today at Thompson Community Centre. It came up at our Town Hall meetings this past summer and discussions we’ve had with stakeholders since then.”

“This is more than just an idle political commitment,” said Johnston, “the number of break and enters in our homes and cars needs to be seriously addressed. Our commitment to deal with that is part of a broader-ranging safety initiative that will make our homes, streets, workplaces and public places safer for our families and workers.” The RCMP reported in August, 2014 that auto B+E’s were up 73.9% from the previous year.

“It’s clear that we need to have more proactive relationship between the community, the City and the RCMP, and we will have that if our Coalition candidates are elected,” said new Council candidate Helen Quan. “The public and the City have a good relationship with the RCMP. We just want to make it better, and make our community safer by working together.”

Among the proposed community safety initiatives planned are:

  • Conducting a community safety assessment with the RCMP under a new safe community advisory council, comprised of senior community stakeholders
  • Enhancing the Blockwatch program and community policing.
  • Annual joint City/RCMP community safety Town Hall meetings in all areas of Richmond.
  • Doing a CPTED (Crime Prevention through Environmental Design) analysis of all public gathering areas, with a view to making them safer.
  • Working with the RCMP to improve response times for Home and business B+E’s.
  • Establishing a more efficient emergency communications system with parents in the event of serious security or lockdown situations at schools.

“We’re not trying to scare people about crime in our community – we just want them to be more secure and make every effort to reduce crime, “ said Johnston. “We need to ensure that we also work with the B.C. and Federal governments to ensure they too are a part of the crime solution.

Coalition Council candidates include: Incumbents Chak Au and Ken Johnston, and new candidates, Sal Bhullar, Dan Baxter, Kirby Graeme, and Helen Quan. School trustee candidates are: Matt Pitcairn, Jonathan Ho, and Moushtak Estepho.

The Richmond Community Coalition is committed to making local government more efficient, more accountable and more responsible. The Coalition was established earlier this year to increase voter turnout and encourage City Hall to engage local citizens more in government. Its Board of Directors comprise a wide range of community activists, with long records of community service to Richmond.
