(ORILLIA, ON) - The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) announced today that the Town of Espanola will transition from being policed by the Espanola Police Service to the OPP commencing October 11, 2018 at 6:00 p.m.

Following the Town of Espanola's request for a costing and subsequent acceptance of the OPP Contract Proposal, the Ontario Civilian Police Commission (OCPC) approved the disbandment of the Espanola Police Service on August 30th, 2018.

As part of the transition to the OPP, the current Espanola Police Service facility located at 76 Center Street, will be temporarily closed between October 11th and November 9th, 2018 while undergoing renovations. These renovations are required to allow the OPP to better serve the residents of Espanola.

During this initial four week transition period (October 11th to November 9th, 2018), Espanola residents may contact the OPP's Espanola satellite detachment at (705) 869-1211 for service.

Further transition details will be provided to the residents of Espanola by both the Town of Espanola and the OPP as October 11th approaches.

The OPP looks forward to a positive working relationship with the Town of Espanola and its residents.
