The East End Police Station closed Friday until further notice because of the government’s ongoing sewage works in the parking lot adjacent to the facility, police announced last week.

“These works have affected the health and well-being of our officers and necessitated the immediate evacuation of the premises,” according to a press release from the Police Information Office.

Though the building is closed, police assured East End residents that law-enforcement services in the area remained operational.

“Officers will continue patrolling the district, ensuring the safety and security of the community,” the release stated, adding that officers can be contacted at 368-9704 for immediate response to reports.

“We apologise for any inconvenience caused and appreciate your understanding during this time.”
