A police incident in Calgary that saw major roadways shut down for most of today (March 28) has been resolved.

The Calgary Police Service (CPS) responded to a call about a man suffering from a mental health crisis at 11:20 p.m. on Wednesday night.

He was standing atop the Reconciliation Bridge, and first responders soon closed nearby roadways and attempted to make contact with the man.

CPS has confirmed that around 6 p.m. today, the man came down voluntarily and was taken to hospital.

According to a release from CPS, officials utilized negotiation techniques, some of which were “made possible in partnership with the Calgary Fire Department.”

The release addresses the major traffic disruptions that were caused as a result of the police response.

“We recognize that this incident significantly impacted access for many Calgarians commuting into the downtown area for work, accessing their homes and local businesses, while also causing several delays in the surrounding areas. We appreciate the public’s patience as emergency crews worked tirelessly to ensure the safety of all involved. We would also like to thank our partners at the Calgary Fire Department, The City of Calgary, and Alberta Health Services for aiding us in bringing a safe resolution to this incident.”

Police are still investigating the incident.
