From the the Saanich Police Blockwatch newsletter:
Saanich Police recognizes the challenging times in our community. The safety of our residents and personnel remain the top priority of the Saanich Police.
To ensure the safety of the public and our personnel, our front counter service will be unavailable until such time the BC Provincial Health Officer provides direction that would deem this service safe again.
As part of our efforts to ensure that we are able to maintain operational readiness during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are asking members of the public to utilize the non-emergency line. 250 475 4321
The line is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Many calls can be dealt with by phone.
-Should you require and Officer for service, please advise the dispatcher if you have flu-like symptoms, have travelled outside of Canada in the last 14 days, or have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.
