Colchester District RCMP is pleased to announce that work is now underway to expand Bible Hill RCMP Detachment.
The project, which officially began on October 15, will significantly expand and upgrade the current detachment facilities at 283 Pictou Rd.
and consolidate all RCMP units and offices in the Bible Hill area under one roof.
‘By expanding and upgrading our current detachment facility, the RCMP is making a long-term commitment to policing services in the Bible Hill area and Colchester County in general’ says Colchester District RCMP commander S/Sgt. John Berry. ‘This infrastructure project will also bring all RCMP resources in Bible Hill under one roof, which will enhance service delivery in the long run.’
The first phase of the project will consist of expanding the original building by approximately 1200 square metres. The second phase will focus on renovating the original structure so that the entire detachment is a modern facility. Upon completion, the upgraded facility will house a total of eight RCMP units, including those that are currently located in the Agritech Park in Bible Hill.
The renovations are being carried out by Bird Construction and are expected to be done in October 2016.
