Proactive and reactive police services in the County of Prince Edward are provided under contract by the Prince Edward Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police as part of the Provincial Eastern Region, and are regulated by the Police Services Act, R.S.O. 1990.
The service in Prince Edward County operates from a new specialized facility located on County Road 1 in Picton. Community Policing Offices located in Rossmore and Wellington are used as satellite base stations, and are equipped to enable patrol officers to remain in their zones when possible.
Citizen Self Reporting System
The Ontario Provincial Police is pleased to offer Citizen Self Reporting, an alternative reporting option that allows the public to report specific crimes to police via the internet, anywhere, anytime. The OPP’s Citizens Self Reporting system allows members of the public to use a computer or mobile device to report an incident without requiring an officer to attend the scene.
Citizen Self Reporting is simple, convenient and can be used when reporting incidents that do not involve injury or a suspect, or a crime that is not an emergency. The use of this new system is completely optional. Police will still attend a call for service if desired.
The O.P.P. is encouraging citizens to report non-emergency incidents online, allowing front line resources to focus on serious crimes and emergencies. To use the O.P.P.s Citizen Self Reporting Service, click here.
