Police Services


Police officers work to prevent crime and keep our communities safe. If you are in an emergency police officers may arrive to help you.

Based on the Police Service Act (Loi sur les services policiers) police services include:

  • Preventing crime
  • Making sure people are following the law
  • Helping victims of crime
  • Responding to emergencies
  • Keeping our communities safe and in order

Most of our towns contract their police services to the Ontario Provincial Police, however, the City of Windsor has their own Police Service as does the Town of LaSalle and the Town of Amherstburg.

You can find further information on the location of local police services on the municipal websites:

At some point you may need to have a police clearance done if you are volunteering or working in a certain setting. You will need to go to the Police Services that are in your town or city. There is usually a cost for a police clearance.
