COVID-19 and SPD Service Delivery Update

The Saanich Police recognizes the challenging times in our community. The safety of our residents and personnel remain the top priority of the Saanich Police. 

To ensure the safety of the public and our personnel, our front counter service will be unavailable until such time the British Columbia Provincial Health Officer provides direction that would deem this service safe again. This will be effective 6pm on March 20, 2020. 

As part of our efforts to ensure that we are able to maintain operational readiness during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are asking members of the public to utilize our non-emergency line. 

To Report an Incident: 

  • To report an emergency or a crime in progress, always call 9-1-1
  • Our non-emergency line is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. To
    report a non-emergency incident, please call 250-475-4321
  • Should you require an Officer for service, please advise the dispatcher or  officer 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 COVID-19 

“We thank you for your patience and understanding. Our intercom system will remain active at the front doors and our building will be staffed by SPD personnel. Anybody who seeks refuge from an in-progress situation will be granted access,” stated Sgt. Kowalewich.
