Effective April 4, 2017, the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) will operationally realign the Espanola Detachment with its Manitoulin Detachment. Additionally, the Noelville, Warren and Killarney OPP Detachments will become satellites of the Sudbury OPP Detachment.
The OPP continuously evaluates its operations to seek efficiencies in support of public safety. A recent review of OPP detachments in its North East Region identified opportunities for efficiencies and reinvestment.
All involved stakeholders were engaged during this process and none of these changes will reduce frontline policing services. Administrative hours for each location also remain unchanged.
The OPP will continue to meet or exceed provincial policing standards anywhere we serve while striving for our shared vision of “Safe Communities…A Secure Ontario.”
