North Grenville - The North Grenville Police Services Board would like to direct residents and businesses on the steps being taken by the OPP to limit the risk of transmission of COVID-19 (Coronavirus).
The OPP has created a dedicated webpage to provide updates to address COVID-19, the state of which is being monitored and assessed daily. Non-emergency services will be adjusted accordingly to ensure safe communities and a secure Ontario.
Commencing immediately, residents and business owners should, where possible, use the OPP online reporting tool, and the OPP non-emergency number (1-888-310-1122) for non-emergent calls for service.
In an emergency, however, do not hesitate to call 9-1-1.
"OPP members continue to respond to all urgent and non-urgent calls for service," said Don Sherritt, Chair of the North Grenville Police Services Board.
Sherritt emphasized that It is crucial at this time that the OPP continue to maintain their capacity to respond to COVID-19 developments in addition to its day to day operations.
"Residents can do their part to ensure the health of OPP personnel by not attending any police facilities unless they have a scheduled appointment, or have called ahead to enquire about services." added Sherritt.

"Whether it is vulnerable citizens cheated out of their life savings or young people stripped of their assets and forced to start over, the harm caused by all types of fraud is staggering. The money taken is used to fuel other illegal activities, causing further harm to society as a whole."– J.V.N. (Vince) HAWKES, OPP Commissioner
