However, Patrol Operations, Booking/Detention and the Records Division will continue to operate out of 50 Jennings Road until sometime in early January 2013.

 

"Additional updates will be provided as the move to the new Public Safety Complex progresses inorder to keep the public informed and ensure there is no disruption in services. " said Chief Rovella.
