Welcome – Message from Chair

Under section 10(2) of the Police Services Act, it states “In order for a municipality to enter into an agreement under this section, the municipality must have a board. “In 2006, the Township of Hamilton Police Services Board entered into an agreement with the Solicitor General for the provision of police services by the Ontario Provincial Police. At this time, a Police Advisory Committee was formed.  In 2007, this Committee became a full legislated Police Board.  I am honoured to welcome you to the Township of Hamilton's Police Service's Board website which will be an ongoing venture between our Board, the Northumberland Detachment OPP and the community of the Township of Hamilton.

Since its inception, the Board has had the opportunity to examine various police related issues as well as travelling throughout the Township to establish initiatives for its Business Plan.  This resulted in the OPP's Business Plan and Commitments stated in this website specific for the Township of Hamilton.
Throughout this website, you will find further information on the Police Services Board that serves the Township of Hamilton and links to the Ontario Provincial Police.  As well as policy initiatives of the Board, you will find the OPP's monthly crime statistics which are updated on a regular basis. Members of the Police Board, short biographies, the Board role and responsibilities, the schedule of monthly Board meetings, agendas and meeting minutes, the qualifications and process for joining the Board and any quarterly reports to Council are also included.
I am proud of my colleagues on the Police Services Board for their ongoing support and dedication to public service as well as the officers of the Ontario Provincial Police, Northumberland Detachment for their professionalism and willingness to work together for the benefit of the residents of the Township.

Richard Malowney
Chair, Township of Hamilton Police Services Board
