Police

Arran-Elderslie has hired the services of the Ontario Provincial Police to handle all of our policing requirements.  We are serviced by the South Bruce O.P.P. detachment.

Remember that if you have an emergency call 911.

If it is not an emergency but you still need the police call the O.P.P dispatch centre at 1-888-310-1122. 
If you have a question of an administrative nature, or would like to speak with a specific officer for some reason, call the local detachment during normal business hours at (519) 881-3130 or (519) 396-3341. 
If you have knowledge of a crime or information that would be of interest to the police and public safety call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

Tips

Telemarketing Scams
If someone calls you on the phone advising you have won something, and then asks you for your credit card information or to send them money or a cheque do not give it to them!  Get a phone number where you can call them back and then call Phonebusters at 1-888-654-9426 or visit their website at www.phonebusters.com to report the scam.
