We’re breaking ground

Guelph, Ont., April 18, 2016 – The media are invited to attend a groundbreaking event on Thursday, April 21 as the Guelph Police Service (GPS) and City of Guelph celebrate the start of construction on the GPS headquarters renovation.

GPS headquarters is undergoing an expansion and renovation to meet the needs of the community’s police services today and 25 years from now.

The $34.1 million renovation project, slated for completion in spring 2019, will bring the facility up to today’s health and safety standards, provide the appropriate space—long-term—for police operations and personnel, and replace the building’s aging equipment.

Thursday’s groundbreaking will take place at 11:30 a.m. at GPS headquarters’ Fountain Street entrance. The event will also be live streamed through the GPS’ Periscope account periscope.tv/gpsmedia.

Limited parking is available on Fountain Street and in the adjacent parking lot on a first come, first served basis.

Dignitaries will be on hand to answer questions following the photo opportunity.
