The BIA hired 10-4 K9 Security Services in 2014 to conduct security patrols in the BIA area. We have increased patrols from 4 to 5 shifts per week and that compliments the security which many of our property managers already have in place. 10-4 K9 has already worked in the North Road area for many years and are very effective at keeping undesirables out of the area, which cuts down on business and property crime.
The BIA works closely with the District 2 Community Police Office (CPO) as members of the Community Policing Advisory Committee (CPAC) to address local crime and safety issues. The Burnaby RCMP were awarded the “Community Pillar Award” by the BIA at the recent AGM, in appreciation of their tremendous efforts in helping our businesses prosper with police support and programs that focus on business crime prevention and education.
