Welcome to the Kentville Police web page

Kentville is a beautiful, vibrant and growing town in the heart of the Annapolis Valley. It is at a crossroads for many people in this area who frequent Kentville for work, business, please and leisure. We are fortunate to have businesses, shopping and active living as part of the daily life of the residents and visitors.

The Kentville Police Service is honored to serve those who live and visit our town. We promote and cherish community engagement and believe that we can only succeed in a community led policing philosophy, in which community has an impact in the way their town is policed. Whether it is through the Board of Police Commissioners, Town Hall meetings or as simple as a phone call or conversation, the Kentville Police Service encourages participation in public safety.

As we look to the future of policing in Kentville, and as we build our strategic plan, I look forward in hearing from residents in their views on what their police service will look like in years to come.
