Town Prepares for Policing Transition Process

Orangeville | by Jill Young  

The Town of Orangeville is working with Orangeville Police and OPP to make a smooth transition between police services.

The Town of Orangeville has been working with both Orangeville Police Service and OPP to make the transition from one to the other as seamless as possible.

That work is now underway, after a tentative transition date was set for October 1st, 2020.

CAO Ed Brennan said the town is working with both police forces to prepare the required documentation for the Ontario Civilian Police Commission (OCPC) Request for Disbandment, which has to be ready for this spring.

OPP will also be meeting with OPS staff this month to go over the application and hiring process for uniform and civilian members.

Those Orangeville members who make the transition will go through a four-week training course at the OPP Headquarters in Orillia in October.

During that time, the OPP will provide extra policing for Orangeville.
