Your Generosity at Work

Chief's Message

I have been blessed to have been selected to lead the Abbotsford Police Department as Chief Constable. Even prior to my official start on November 2, 2023, I had the pleasure to get involved with the work on the Abbotsford Police foundation at the 2023 Crime is Toast breakfast.

Soon after, I attended the Abbotsford Police City Basketball Tournament. Even early in my tenure as Chief, the impact of the work of the APF is obvious. The Abbotsford Police Foundation (APF) plays a pivotal role in fostering strong connections between the AbbyPD and our community. Their commitment to safety, positive initiatives, and collaboration is commendable. Let’s continue supporting their mission to make Abbotsford ‘The Safest City in BC’! I would like to thank the APF Board of Directors and every member of our community who support the work of the APF!

President's Message

Our 9th annual Crime is Toast – Breakfast with the Chief signature fundraiser was an opportunity to thank outgoing Chief Mike Serr for his dedicated service; and to welcome Chief Designate Colin Watson. We chose the event to launch our Monthly Giving campaign and want to thank everyone who supports us with a monthly donation. Without you we would not be able to fund the many AbbyPD initiatives that help connect police with the community and build positive relationships.

Special thanks to outgoing board members Kevin Boonstra and Jon Eaton for their service. And a heartfelt welcome to our six newly elected board members. These dedicated volunteers work tirelessly to help support AbbyPD in their quest to be ‘The Safest City in BC.’
