As the city’s population grows, dispatching police cruisers from Laval’s lone police post on St. Martin increasingly can entail delays in responding to 911 calls in some of parts of Île Jésus, Laval’s new police chief told The Suburban.
“It can cause problems in covering all of Laval when all deployments originate from a single location,” said Chief Pierre Brochet.
As a result, the city is moving forward with the construction of a second police station on Labelle in Chomedey, sought of Highway 440.
The station will be built on the site that formerly housed Chomedey Ford, and will ought to be complete by 2017, at the latest, said Chief Brochet.
The new police post is part of the city’s development plan.
“The city needs to reflect how its police service will to support the growth that Laval is currently enjoying,” said Chief Brochet, “consistent with the economic and financial context.”
