The Kelowna RCMP open KLO Community Policing Office

Non-emergency services can be obtained by attending 100-1450 KLO Rd., or by calling the office at 250-470-0600. Call 911 for emergencies.

The Kelowna RCMP have opened a new KLO Community Policing Office which not only replaces the decommissioned Mission Community Policing Office but expands the previous area of service.

The Kelowna RCMP has operated a Community Policing Office (CPO) in the Mission since 1996 when the first office was opened as an 800-sq-ft addition to the fire hall on DeHart Road.

The Mission CPO was relocated in 2001 to Lakeshore Road for additional work space along with a large meeting room which was used extensively for training.

Due to the age of the building it was deemed too costly to renovate and maintain to meet RCMP security standards so a new location was acquired before the old building was decommissioned last December.

Through a lease agreement between the City of Kelowna, the Regional District of the Central Okanagan (RDCO) and the RCMP, the new office has been opened at 100-1450 KLO Rd.

This new location brings access to policing services to the broader communities of Mission, Crawford Estates and East Kelowna. The new office provides for even more work space and will be staffed by both municipal employees and RCMP officers in addition to being a base of operations for over 50 RCMP volunteers and various crime prevention programs.

Services similar to those available at all Kelowna Regional RCMP Detachment offices can be obtained at the KLO Community Policing Office but Criminal Record Checks can only be processed at the main Kelowna Detachment, located at 350 Doyle Ave., or in West Kelowna.

KLO Community Policing Office hours of operation will be from 8 am to 3 pm, Monday to Friday, excluding holidays. Non-emergency services can be obtained by attending 100-1450 KLO Rd., or by calling the office at 250-470-0600.

911 should be used in case of emergencies where an immediate response is required.
