Lethbridge Police Headquarters Facility Expansion (D-6)

​​​​​​​​​​Status​Active
​Timeline​2014-2016
​Location​135 - 1st Avenue South

Project Description

The Lethbridge Police Services building is located at 135 1st Avenue South.

It currently houses 243 staff as well as nearly 60 volunteers and has exceeded its design capacity.  Expansion of the existing facility is necessary to address critical space shortages and accommodate future growth.

The Lethbridge Police Headquarters Facility Expansion includes:

  • Relocation of the Public Safety Communications Centre to the new Fire Department Headquarters
  • Construction of a three-level addition at the rear of the existing building, which will add approximately 3,500 m2 of functional area, increasing the headquarters facility to approximately 9,500 ​m2
  • Construction of a two level parking structure, which will increase parking capacity for operational and staff vehicles from 167 spaces to approximately 300 

Based on predicted demographics and existing City growth rates, the expansion will extend the life of the building for approximately 25 years.

The design will include environmentally sustainable building features where feasible.

The facility will remain open during construction, but access will be limited. Public are encouraged to contact the LPS using their web site or by phone to see if they can answer their query during this time.
