The temporary reduction in administrative service hours at the Yellowknife Detachment will remain in effect for Yellowknife RCMP and Northwest Territories RCMP.
That means the front counter will be staffed from 10 am to 2 pm only.
The fingerprinting and criminal records check services have been reinstated in the reduced administrative hours.
Due to a structural integrity issue with the main water pipe system in the Mounties’ Henry Larsen Building, major repairs will be taking place in and around the building.
That will affect the availability of parking in the area in front of the Yellowknife Detachment front entrance.
Veterans Memorial Drive (49th Avenue) will also have intermittent road closures as the repairs are made to the piping underneath the main building.
RCMP asks that motorists plan on possibly having to park further away from the building to access the front entrance for the Yellowknife Detachment.
Police state that the Yellowknife Detachment front line policing and investigative services and the Operational Communications Centre (OCC) continue to be operational and there will be no change to their service levels due to the building repairs.
