The temporary measure will allow for major repair work on station 24, located across from the Outremont Metro station.

Montreal police assure their community services will not be affected. Officers will continue to focus on their respective districts, covering Côte-des-Neiges, Outremont and the Town of Mount Royal (TMR).

This is the second set of police stations to merge, after stations 37 and 38 in Montreal’s Plateau joined forces in 2014.

Montreal police say they hope the success of that previous experience will guide the current integration.
