The Orangeville Police Service was formed in 1864. In 2020 policing for the Town of Orangeville was transitioned to the Ontario Provincial Police.  Dufferin OPP is now responsible for providing policing for the Town of Orangeville and they continue to have an Orangeville Detachment located at 390 C Line in Orangeville. Policing is carried out under the direction of the local Detachment Commander, Inspector Terry Ward.
