CN Police celebrates 100 years!

A century of pride and purpose

On April 1, 2023, CN Police Services (CNPS) marked its 100th anniversary as an integral part of our railroad and communities. It is a rich history closely tied to the history of CN itself, in which CNPS members have been focussed on protecting people and property, and building safer, stronger communities across the network.

What began as the amalgamation of several railway companies by the Government of Canada in 1923 led to the establishment of the Department of Investigation, known as the Canadian National Railway Police. Today, the CN Police Service spans CN’s large network, operating in eight Canadian provinces and in 16 U.S. States.

Retired CN Police Officer Marc LeBreux, whose son, Andre, is currently a CN Police Constable, has many fond memories of his time on the force. “It was a privilege to serve,” says Marc. “In the early days, my main job was to protect CN’s image, assets and interests. Community involvement was introduced later in my career and I very much enjoyed promoting rail safety at the Special Olympics and other events. I have CN tattooed on my heart.”
