Personal & Community Safety

NEW INTEGRATED CCTV AND ‘SHOTSPOTTER’ TECHNOLOGY PROPOSED FOR SURREY

POLICE BODY CAMERAS TO BE MANDATORY ACROSS BC

The Leader of the BC Citizens First Party, Mr. Phillip Ryan, today announced significant major initiatives to increase the personal and community safety of BC citizens from gang violence.


The party has promised to immediately fund 24 hour Closed Circuit TV monitoring of Surrey streets using CCTV networks as currently used by the City of London. In addition, new gunshot audio identifying and triangulating ‘ShotSpotter’ technology as recently introduced in Chicago, Illinois, will simultaneously be installed in order to provide more rapid response by police to the use of guns in public.  ShotSpotter has already been operating successfully in a large number of USA cities for a number of years. “This technology is better than 911” says the Chicago Police Superintendent, Mr. Eddie Johnson, “It pinpoints exactly where the shots have come from, and we then have a 5 to 7 minute advantage in responding to it a lot quicker than we did before”


(For background on this integrated technology solution, journalists should reference a recent CBS TV News story from Chicago, Illinois from February 2017: archive.org/details/KYW_20170204_233000_CBS_Weekend_News/start/960/end/1020   -  hit play at the 6.46pm storyline, and then expand the video to full screen using the within-video screen expansion arrows)


“We need to immediately take the guns and violence off the streets of Surrey” said Mr. Ryan. “The current BC Liberal Government has utterly failed to protect Surrey citizens from gun violence on our streets”. “The situation is now far worse than it was when they first came to power”, said Mr. Ryan.  “Parents, children, seniors and passersby are all currently at high risk just walking around Surrey neighborhoods. He also added “We are also open to installing this technology solution into other BC communities experiencing gun violence, such as Abbotsford”


PERSONAL SAFETY FOR OUR CITIZENS

Protection from North Korea

BRITISH COLUMBIA NEEDS PROTECTION FROM POTENTIAL NORTH KOREA MISSILE ATTACK

MEDIA RELEASE – SATURDAY APRIL 15 2017
The Leader of the BC Citizens First Party, Mr. Phillip Ryan  today called on the Trump and Trudeau Governments to immediately put in place measures to protect British Columbia from any imminent or inadvertent intercontinental nuclear missile launch from North Korea.


Mr. Ryan said that US military analysts have already confirmed that North Korea has the ability to launch missiles which can reach the west coast of North America “such as Washington State, Oregon and California” (1).  “With British Columbia sitting right between Washington State and the State of Alaska it would only take a 1 degree deviation for any missile aimed at the USA to rain down on B.C.” said Mr. Ryan.


“We already know that North Korea has nuclear arms capabilities and has successfully launched intercontinental ballistic missiles. In recent weeks we have also seen them launch four rockets simultaneously which makes it very difficult to guarantee a 100% success rate in shooting them all down at launch time”.


“BC citizens need the direct support of both the Trudeau Government and the Trump Administration to establish a joint state-of-the-art “wall of steel” intercontinental missile defence system located at strategic points along the BC Coast so as to deliver a reliable land-based anti-missile strategy." Any intercontinental missiles will travel at very high velocity and very high altitude” said Mr. Ryan.

“The last thing we need here is for nuclear fallout raining down on BC citizens. Any nuclear explosion on BC land could additionally trigger a massive earthquake which would then result in a “double whammy” paralyzing British Columbia” said Mr. Ryan.
