After five months, Annapolis County District RCMP Bridgetown office renovations are complete, modernizing the building to improve RCMP services within Annapolis County.
The renovations are part of a three-year project meant to enhance and improve the building overall. Since 2013, six new positions were assigned to work out of the office, requiring an updated layout, and numerous building upgrades.
"Updating and modernizing our Bridgetown office is a significant investment meant to create a more efficient and positive environment for our employees and the citizens we serve," says S/Sgt. MacGillivray. "I'm also happy to report that renovation costs totaled just under one million dollars, however did not impact cost for service to the municipality as the RCMP absorbed all associated costs."
Since 2014, the building received upgrades to the cell block pavilion and a new roof. Recent renovations included collapsing of two offices, updating the conference room and bathrooms and the creation of an interview room for the public. These changes are meant to improve air flow and heating, improve access to natural light and improve general use of space. The parking lot will also be updated in the near future.
Annapolis County District RCMP is made up of Bridgetown and Middleton offices comprised of 27 employees who serve approximately 20,000 citizens.
Twenty employees currently work out of the Bridgetown office located at 552 Granville St. (Evangeline Trail). Front-counter service is available to the public Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. To contact the Bridgetown office, call 902-665-4481.
