CPS Victoria Park Station Redeployment

In December 2017, Calgary Police Service District 1 will implement a program to offer a mobile high visibility presence in the core, following the redeployment of officers from the Victoria Park Station to the Ramsay Station.

In an effort to find both operational and financial efficiencies for the Service and the City of Calgary, the CPS District 1 – Victoria Park Station will be moving all officers to the District 1 Ramsay Station as of Monday, Nov. 20, 2017.

By combining the two stations into one, the Service will be able to redeploy officers to address crime reduction strategies as necessary, enhance front counter service at other District 1 stations, and support efforts to find financial efficiencies.

We want to assure the public there will be no decrease in the level of policing service downtown and we will continue to have a high visibility presence. Beginning in December, a mobile station will be located in the core during week-day business hours. As well as enhancing security and safety, the high visibility presence will give the community a chance to interact with members. Further details of the mobile station, which will be a vehicle currently in the CPS fleet, will be shared prior to the beginning of December.

Members of the public wishing to report a crime can still attend the District 1 Ramsay or Chinook Centre Mall Community Station. The Ramsay Station front counter hours will remain open to our community 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., seven days a week. The Chinook Centre Mall Community Station, also a District 1 reporting station, is available to the public Monday to Friday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The Victoria Park Station was home to a front counter for reporting, the District 1 Beat Teams and the District 1 Bike Team. These teams will now deploy out of the Ramsay station. The front counter staff will augment staffing at the Ramsay Station and the Chinook Centre Mall Community Station.

In addition to these two front counter locations in District 1, property-related crime can be reported online at calgarypolice.ca, or by calling 403-266-1234 for any non-emergency related reports. We are also able to answer general questions through our social media pages on Facebook and Twitter.
