Policing Services

The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) provides municipal policing services to the municipality under contract. Their office is located at 80 Riverside Drive.

In the case of an emergency please dial 911.

If the matter is non-emergent, please call 705-335-2238.

What is the mandate of contract policing?

  • To develop, in cooperation with detachments, regions and GHQ stakeholders, client-focused policing proposals for municipalities and private consortiums who have requested a costing for OPP contract policing services, on the approval and direction of the Ministry of the Community Safety and Correctional Services, and pursuant to the PSA.
  • To provide support to regional and detachment commanders to facilitate maintenance of existing Section 10 PSA contracts through regular liaison with municipal authorities, provision of guidance and advice, policy direction and training in regards to contract requirements.
  • To serve as the centre of excellence respecting the Contract Policing Program and respond to requests for information from municipalities, civilian governance authorities (Ontario Association of Police Services Boards), ministries, regions and detachments in regard to issues related to both the provision of contract and non-contract OPP municipal policing services.
  • In concert with detachment, region and GHQ stakeholders, to develop, track and invoice 911 Central Emergency Reporting Bureau services, specialized and support services contracts supporting municipal police services, and develop and track reciprocal Framework Agreements in support of adequate and effective policing across Ontario.
