The cost of building a new RCMP Detachment could go as high as $43 million.  The City hopes to fund the new facility through annual lease payments on 40% of the full capital cost from the Province and through grants with the Federal Government.

The City will also use funds from the Peace River Agreement and internal reserves to fund the construction if the project moves forward.
