Official crest of the RCMP
The City of Burnaby has over a century of local policing history. This dates back to the first police constable, A.D. Cook, who was 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 B.C. Provincial Police was absorbed by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), who have been providing policing services to the citizens of Burnaby for the past 60 years.
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 organizes the City of Burnaby into four districts for operational purposes and as a way to consult with the communities about their unique public safety concerns. These geographical areas are defined by northeast, northwest, southeast and southwest and have a Community Police Office (CPO) within the defines area.
