Lethbridge Police Service is adjusting its operations in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, as they work to prevent the spread of the virus and protect the health and safety of its employees and the public.

As of 4 p.m. Wednesday, and for the next 30 days, public access to the LPS front counter will be closed, the LPS said in a release. If you have business at the police station or require information call general inquiries at 403-327-2210.

Public access to the Collision Reporting Centre is closed. The CRC is now accepting reports over the phone. To report a collision where the combined damages exceed $2,000 call 403-330-5191. For injury collisions call 403-328-4444.

Frontline officers will continue to respond to all emergency and priority calls. Call 911 for emergencies and crimes in progress.

All non-emergency calls where an officer is not immediately required to attend in person will be managed over the phone. Call 403-328-4444 to report non-emergencies.

For lost property, theft under $5,000, theft from a vehicle under $5,000, mischief or damage to a property or vehicle under $5,000, or for information, online reporting at lethbridgepolice.ca/online-reporting should be used.

The safety of the community remains paramount and there will be no impact to emergency call response.
