Orangeville Police re-open their facilities on August 4, 2020

The Orangeville Police Service is pleased to announce that they will be re-opening their 390 C Line, Orangeville office to the public starting on Tuesday, August 4, 2020, from 8 am to 4pm.

On March 17, 2020, the Ontario Government made a declaration of a state of emergency under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act, to help contain the spread of COVID-19. At that time, OPS facilities were closed to the public.

The Orangeville Police Service remains committed to providing essential services throughout the community. To maximize the service to citizens and ensure the health and safety of employees and the community, the Service has developed a recovery plan and implemented several health and safety measures:

  • A staff member will direct traffic flow, screen visitors prior to entry and ensure appropriate social distancing.
  • All persons entering the station will be required to wear a mask and if they do not have one, they will be issued one.
  • Six feet markers have been placed on the floor of the front lobby to remind people to practice physical distancing as well pylons in the parking lot will be used for this purpose.
  • A Plexiglas barrier has been installed at the front counter.
  • A hand sanitizing station has been set up at the entrance to aid in proper hand hygiene.
  • OPS will reopen to the public from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
  • Only debit and credit cards will be accepted as payment.

We encourage everyone to continue to do their part to limit the spread of COVID-19. Citizens are reminded to only visit the Police Service if necessary, schedule appointments when requested/required and adhere to physical distancing guidelines.

At this time the Orangeville Police will also be resuming their Criminal Record Check service. Applicants are strongly encouraged to visit the OPS website: www.orangevillepolice.ca/services/criminal-records, print off the appropriate application and have it completed prior to visiting the Police Service. If you are not able to have your application completed prior to attending, one will be provided for you upon your arrival. The application must be completed prior to entering the building. When possible, the application will be processed while the applicant waits so that members of the public will not have to return at a later date.

The Orangeville Police Service thanks the public for their cooperation during this time.
