Home » News » Regina Police Service (RPS) Headquarters Expansion Underway

On Thursday, the Regina Police Service (RPS) celebrated the completion of the first phase of headquarters expansion project worth $50.4 million. After many years of construction and renovation, the RPS headquarters is almost finished. Mayor Sandra Masters expressed her satisfaction. She stated, “The City of Regina is happy to see the opening of the first phase of the new Regina Police Service headquarters, which will serve our residents.” This accessible building demonstrates the RPS’s dedication to community development and public safety, enabling them to provide services that meet the needs of our city.

The Regina police service Campus Development Project consists of two more phases. Currently, the Municipal Justice Building is in phase 2 and is expected to be completed by January 2024. This building will be shared by the community and the police department, featuring a gym, offices, and a community kitchen. In phase 3, Headquarters East, will undergo renovation and is scheduled to be completed by 2025.

Bray, explained that their approach has effectively managed expenses while ensuring the facilities are prepared for future expansion. “This building is designed to serve our community in the years to come,” he said.

The Regina Police Service (RPS) Headquarters was originally built in 1977. In recent years, the RPS has experienced growth due to Regina’s increasing population, necessitating the expansion of their facilities. The existing building is no longer sufficient to accommodate all people, maintain operations, and provide efficient service. Thus, the RPS plant expansion is currently underway.

Mayor Sandra Masters emphasized the importance of accessibility and privacy. She stated, “This building is highly accessible for individuals with disabilities and provides a private space for those who need it while reporting a crime.” She further said, “Considering the sensitive and often traumatic nature of the situations they handle, it is crucial to have a private area that is open and spacious for the community.”

According to Bray, the RPS’s investigative teams will return to the headquarters. The Regina Police Department currently consists of 650 officers and other personnel.

The headquarters will open its doors to the public for the first time next week.
