Nelson Police Department

The Nelson Police Department is among the oldest in the province. It came into being as a municipal police force on April 17, 1897. Over the 115 years of its existence, the NPD has grown from 2 to 19 members.

Community-based policing is our mainstay. Nelson residents and visitors can still experience the presence of the beat officer patrolling on foot on its historic streets.
