Media staff


The Abbotsford Police Department strives to be open, honest, visible and accessible to the public.  We are committed to keeping you informed about topics of public interest and how the Department is working to enforce the law and keep our community safe.

Through our Media Relations Officer (MRO), Cst. Art Stele, we use our website, traditional media outlets (print, radio, television) and social media accounts (Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and Twitter) to keep you apprised of public safety and security issues in a timely manner. We recognize the integral role the media plays in keeping the public informed, so we use these platforms to provide updates on ongoing investigations, to issue warnings regarding public risk, to request information regarding missing persons, and to ask for the public’s assistance in identifying/locating suspects.

A large part of the MRO's responsibility is to respond to the thousands of media enquiries the Department receives every year. AbbyPD engages actively with the media, and endeavours to accommodate all reasonable and lawful requests. For media enquiries or community concerns, please contact the Media Relations Officer by email at [email protected].
