Côte-des-Neiges—Notre-Dame-de-Grâce borough residents will lose an essential service after Montreal police announced that station 11 in NDG will close and integrate into station 9 in neighbouring Côte Saint-Luc.

According to the SPVM, the integration of both police stations is for operational purposes, since the goal is to form a greater “critical mass.”

NDG borough mayor Sue Montgomery said she was disappointed to learn of the closure of  station 11, especially that the station has been “breaking barriers and building trust with residents of NDG, especially newcomers.”

The exact date of the integration of the two stations is still unconfirmed.
