The Prince Albert Police Service has finalized the sale of the Criminal Investigations Division building at 15-15th St. W. and handed over the keys to the new owners at Prince Albert Mobile Crisis.
The sale was completed last month.
“Mobile Crisis provides an important connection to services and supports that help the most vulnerable members of our community,” said Prince Albert Police Chief Jonathan Bergen. “We work closely with our partners at Mobile Crisis and having them next door will be a benefit to our organization.”
The team at Mobile Crisis is excited about coming back to the downtown area after more than a decade at their previous location along Second Avenue West, said Executive Director Vicki Stewart.
“We are still in the process of getting settled into the new building, and look forward to renewing our ties with the local downtown community,” Ms. Stewart said. “We continue to provide the same services, including crisis intervention and sexual assault counselling, while we transition to our new space.”
Mobile Crisis purchased the building following a request for proposals earlier this year. Following the RFP process, the initial buyer for the property declined to go ahead with the sale.
The police service purchased the building next to the police station on 15th Street West in 2008. Most recently, the building housed the Criminal Investigations Division of the police service, which investigates major crimes in the community.
The building was put up for sale following the purchase of the secondary substation location on 10th Street East in 2019.
