Downtown Victoria Tour
Fisgard Street – 600 Block
625 Fisgard Street – formerly the Victoria Police Headquarters

This building was designed in and built in 1914 by architect John Charles Malcolm Keith as the Victoria Police headquarters and jail.

It served as the Victoria Police headquarters building until 1996, when the Victoria Police department moved into its current building at Quadra Street and Caledonia Street.

The building is listed on the Canadian Register of Historic Places as the City of Victoria Police Station.

In 2005, the former Victoria Police headquarters building was incorporated into the new C.R.D. building in Centennial Square. Only the facade of the original 1914 building remains intact.
