File # Crescent Beach
Surrey RCMP is reminding the public to follow current bylaws related to the use of parks and outdoor spaces in Surrey.
Crescent Beach in particular, has been an area of concern. Residents have raised several concerns regarding fires on the beach, and unsafe driving through the neighborhood. Surrey RCMP also responded to noise complaints stemming from late-night beach parties.
In response to the uptick in calls for service to the Crescent Beach area, Surrey RCMP has increased patrols. On June 3, 2021, Surrey RCMP frontline officers and Surrey RCMP Traffic Unit conducted targeted traffic enforcement that resulted in approximately 300 vehicle checks and 20 violation tickets were issued for a variety of motor vehicle act offences, and two people were arrested for weapons offences.
The public is also reminded that the Blackie Spit parking lot closes and will be locked after 10:00 pm. Last week, a car became lodged between boulders after the driver attempted to retrieve his vehicle after hours by driving through the pedestrian walkway.
Under current city bylaws, campfires are not allowed on Crescent Beach, individuals lighting fires may be subject to a $200 fine.
Crescent Beach is a one of Surrey’s most popular attractions, says Constable Sarbjit K. Sangha, Media Relations Officer for Surrey RCMP.
We want to ensure that individuals enjoy their time at the beach, but also ask everyone to respect area residents through abiding by current bylaws, and traffic regulations.
Pro-active patrols by Surrey RCMP in the Crescent Beach area will be on going throughout the summer.
Anyone with more information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502. If you wish to make an anonymous report please contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.solvecrime.ca.
