Police Services & Municipal Hall Project
Updated January 2017
The Police Services & Municipal Hall project is on budget and on time for opening in fall 2017. Construction is moving into its last phases. We thank nearby residents who have been affected by construction for their patience and cooperation.
Locating the new Police Services Building on the Municipal Hall site and connecting it to the Municipal Hall means lower operating costs for both, with many costs to be shared. It also means convenience and service improvements for residents.
The new building is critical for community safety. It's seismically sound and will ensure that West Vancouver Police Department officers are available to respond in the wake of a major disaster.

After years of planning, construction has begun on this critical piece of community infrastructure: the new Police Services Building.
In January 2015, Council approved the plan and funding model for a new building which, when completed, will allow the West Vancouver Police Department to provide even better safety and security services to residents each and every day, but also to fulfill its key role as a first responder in a disaster situation—like an earthquake.
The West Vancouver Police Department’s current building on Marine Drive and 13th Street was constructed decades ago and was not built to survive a major earthquake or operate in a post-disaster situation.
The project includes space connected to the current Municipal Hall to provide a one-stop counter for residents, giving you better access, services and support for any reason you may have to visit the hall.
We recognize that construction means inconvenience for residents nearby. We will do our best to reduce the impact on residents. While construction is underway, traffic flow and pedestrian access may be impacted between Fulton Avenue and Esquimalt Avenue, and between 16th Street and 17th Street.
The new Police Services Building is on budget and on schedule for completion in fall 2017.
