The ground on a new Peel Regional Police (PRP) Station that will serve the northern section of Brampton was officially broken on Monday.

The new 23 Division station is located at the northwest corner of Lagerfeld Drive and Mississauga Road and is set to be completed and running by the end of 2026 or beginning of 2027.

The new station will play home to more officers than any other existing PRP facilities across the region. Officers in 23 division will be deployed across the northern section of Brampton.

The two storey, 61,000 square-foot building will house uniform patrol, Criminal Investigation Bureau, Community Intervention and Response Team (CIRT) unit, bike patrol, Community Liaison Office, Divisional Mobilization Unit (DMU) satellite office, and include an accident reporting centre.

“We are excited to announce this landmark investment to maintain public safety across our growing region,” PRP Chief Nishan Duraiappah. “This ground-breaking translates our commitment to growth, community integration, and the well-being of our officers as we continue to provide top-tier policing services to our residents.

One of the fastest growing, most diverse communities in the country, Peel Region’s population is expected to near 2 million people in less than 20 years, adding up to greater demands on maintaining public safety.

The new 23 Division was designed using sustainable materials consistent with the Region of Peel’s net zero carbon commitment.
