The City of Burnaby has over a century of local policing history dating back to the first police constable, A.G. Cook, being hired in 1900. In 1935, the Great Depression saw the disbandment of the local police force which was replaced by the British Columbia Provincial Police. In 1950, the BC Provincial Police was absorbed by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and for the past 60 years the RCMP has been providing policing services to the citizens of Burnaby. The Burnaby RCMP has grown into the second largest Detachment in Canada and the third largest police service in the Province of British Columbia.
The Burnaby RCMP is conveniently located adjacent to the City Hall. Parking is available across the street from the Detachment. Additional parking is located at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts (6450 Deer Lake Avenue) and the Burnaby Art Gallery (6344 Deer Lake Avenue).
