    Its Official: West Nipissing Disbanding - OPP Arriving

    GOVERNMENT North Bay Nugget – Ontario Provincial Police will not be taking over policing in West Nipissing in the near future. Barry Bertrand, chairman of the West Nipissing Police Services Board, said the transfer of policing from West Nipissing Police Service to the OPP was stopped by a decision in Sudbury District Court Thursday. "The judge stated the motions to have the Ontario Provincial Police take over policing duties from West Nipissing Police Service are still there, but they can't be enacted until we have our day in court," Bertrand said. "This is a victory," he said. "It now gives the opportunity for feedback." The police board claims the process to accept the OPP's costing proposal was flawed and biased.

    New O.P.P. Detachment - 407 ETR

    We are pleased to announce the opening of the new 407 ETR Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Detachment located at Bathurst and Highway 407 ETR in Thornhill. 407 ETR is very proud to be providing the OPP with a new state-of-the-art building. The new building is being provided in addition to the annual operating costs of policing and road/winter maintenance that 407 ETR also pays as part of managing the highway. This new building supports quality in policing, driver and officer safety, and the communities we serve across the corridor. The company greatly appreciates the ongoing work OPP has undertaken to maintain safety on the roadway and continue to make safety a true hallmark of 407 ETR’s overall reputation. The new 407 ETR OPP Detachment brings police that respond to incidents on the highway and enforce safe driving closer to the highway and provides police with the facilities they need to operate safely and effectively. The relationship between the 407 ETR and the Ontario Provincial Police continues to grow. This initiative is but one example of how the private sector can provide a valuable service and work closely with a vital agency of government to help ensure the safety of the drivers that take over 125 million trips a year and travelled over 2.7 billion kilometres on the highway last year alone. Please drive safely.
  12. Hello, looking for assistance in identifying the era and agency for this type of badge. Many thanks.

  22. super, thanks for the info Steve... I'll pass it along
  23. Mike: tell Rick that one book was published in 1971 entitled: Policing in Scarborough, 1792 to 1957. Author is Donald Taylor. It may have the answers. There is one copy only at the Cedarbrae Library. Hope this helps. Steve
  24. Mike. Tough answer and not a lot written. Back in the day, in some of the 13 towns, villages etc. that made up todays GTA, the Police and Fire Chief were one person. This was true in Forest Hill and Scarborough and a few others. All I have located so far is in 1925, in Scarborough, the Fire and Police Chief was Chief W.F. Scott. Steve Green
  25. I had a request from RIck Schoffield of the Scarborough Historical Society to identify the Police Chiefs of the defunct Scarborough force. Does anyone have this history? The Scarborough Historical Society promotes, preserves and stimulates an interest in the history of Scarborough, Ontario. The SHS has grown to be one of the largest and most active historical societies in Canada since its founding in 1956. We collect and share the history of Scarborough from its earliest recorded history to the experiences of our newest residents.
