Richmond RCMP Community Police Office (CPO) in central Richmond officially opened and is now offering front counter services.
The construction of this beautiful new facility is a reflection of the strong and effective partnership shared between the City of Richmond and RCMP, says Superintendent Julie Drotar, Acting Officer-in-Charge Richmond Detachment,
We are excited with this new facility and are proud of the collaboration that went into making it.
The Richmond RCMP CPO officially opened its doors to the public on April 1, 2022. The CPO was supposed to open to the public in spring 2020, however, it was delayed due to COVID-19.
The safety of our community remains a priority, said Mayor Malcolm Brodie.
This new facility is an important piece of infrastructure that will enable the Richmond RCMP to continue to deliver highly efficient and effective enforcement and engagement within the community. The new City Centre Community Police Office is a shining example of yet another investment by the City of Richmond to help keep our community, residents and businesses safe.
Our success as a police service depends on strong relationships with the communities we serve, says Superintendent Drotar,
This modern facility empowers us to build and strengthen our relationships with the City Centre neighbourhood and Richmond at large.
Front counter staff at the CPO are able to provide all services that are currently available at the main Richmond RCMP Detachment. Services available include fingerprinting and criminal record checks. For a full list of services currently available visit the Richmond RCMP website.
Our officers have been utilizing the building since it was completed in the Spring of 2020, says Corporal Adriana O’Malley, Richmond RCMP Media Relations Officer,
And we are really excited to now be able to offer front counter services to the public in central Richmond.
The CPO is located at 6931 Granville Ave. Hours of operation will be Monday through Friday from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm.
