The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is taking action to help reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 by restricting the access to its facilities, including detachments, across the province.
The OPP is limiting the processing of routine criminal record checks/vulnerable sector checks and finger printing to essential workers/volunteers only. Anyone seeking entry to OPP Blind River, Thessalon and Elliot Lake Detachments must make an appointment first. Individuals will be pre-screened and are required to have proper personal protective equipment prior to entering the detachment.
If you require any detachment-based service, including criminal record checks and vulnerable sector checks, please call in advance for an appointment:
- Blind River (705) 356-2244
- Elliot Lake (705) 848-6975
- Thessalon (705) 842-3244
Their operating hours are 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
For emergencies, please call 9-1-1. For all other police matters, please call 1-888-310-1122 or your local detachment. Report online by visiting opp.ca/reporting.
The OPP thanks the public for helping us to keep our communities safe by using the means listed above to avoid unnecessary contact.
