The Saanich Police Department has closed its front counter service until the B.C. Provincial Health Officer provides direction that would deem this service safe again.
Saanich police asks members of the public to utilize non-emergency lines when possible. As the virus spreads, police will focus their efforts to provide essential services to residents. Non-emergency lines will be operating 24/7 and can be reached at 250-475-4321
Police advise anyone requiring an officer for service to let dispatch know if you have flu like symptoms, have travelled outside of Canada in the last 14 days or have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for the virus.
Fingerprinting service for the general public will not be available until further notice in accordance Island Health recommendations.
“Our intercom system will remain active at the front door and our building will be staffed by SPD personnel. Anybody who seeks refuge from an in-progress situation will be granted access,” stated Sgt. Damian Kowalewich.
