RCMP Officially Opens New Twillingate Detachment


It's official, the Twillingate Detachment of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police was the site of a grand opening ceremony for the new detachment, which serves Twillingate and surrounding communities. The new facility features state-of-the-art design and replaces the previous detachment which was over 50 years old. The ceremony included a ribbon cutting, followed by a tour of the detachment.

The building’s design was first used in this province for the Whitbourne Detachment and will serve as a template for any future RCMP detachment projects in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Features of the new 565-square-meter building include state-of-the-art thermal design, automated lighting and plumbing fixtures, and a flexible design concept that will allow for future additions and renovations. The detachment also features a fully functional cell pavilion with secure cells, a breath-testing and fingerprinting area, and a secure bay for prisoner transfers. The new detachment became operational in March 2017.
