Orangeville transitions to OPP: What You Need to Know

  • The hours of business are currently 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. After 4 p.m, a person should call the office directly (519-942-1711) and leave a message for administrative purposes. For police matters, please call the OPP Communications Centre at 1-888-310-1122 (toll free in Ontario).
  • For non-emergency, such as filing a report or other non-urgent police matters, residents can call the OPP Communications Centre at 1-888-310-1122 (toll free in Ontario).
  • If residents are making complaints about traffic issues, the best option is to contact the OPP Communications Centre (1-888-310-1122) to file a report. The OPP creates occurrences for each complaint, which helps track areas of high complaints and co-ordinate effective enforcement.
  • To report a crime using the online reporting tool, residents can visit opp.ca/reporting. This can be used for lost/missing property, stolen licence plates or validation stickers, theft from a vehicle, mischief to a vehicle, other mischief (such as graffiti), theft or driving complaints where there are no suspects, no injuries and no evidence.
  • Information on criminal record checks can be found on opp.ca.
  • Even during the initial month of transition, while Orangeville officers are training in Orillia, OPP officers will be visible and accessible. There will be foot patrols and vehicle patrols and the officers are approachable. Acting Inspector Nicol Randall, Interim Commander, says the officers are excited about this new chapter for the Dufferin detachment.
  • Residents can call for information related to administrative issues (collision reports, incident reports, volunteer fingerprints, Freedom of Information requests) to the new telephone number 519-942-1711 and the call will be forwarded to the OPP’s Dufferin Detachment where someone will assist them.
