Lennox & Addington OPP Detachment Board

OPP Detachment Boards oversee how policing is provided in their local community. The four municipalities in Lennox and Addington County have partnered to establish the Lennox and Addington OPP Detachment Board to serve residents of Addington Highlands Township, Town of Greater Napanee, Loyalist Township and Stone Mills Township.

As set out in the legislation, the Lennox and Addington County OPP Detachment Board’s role includes:

  1. Participating in the selection of the Detachment Commander;
  2. Determining objectives and priorities for police services after consultation with the Detachment Commander;
  3. Advising the Detachment Commander with respect to policing provided by the Detachment;
  4. Monitoring the performance of the Detachment Commander;
  5. Reviewing regular reports from the Detachment Commander regarding policing provided by the Detachment, and
  6. Providing an annual report to the member municipalities regarding the policing provided by the Detachment in their municipalities.

Along with its legislated duties, the OPP Detachment Board is considered a bridge between the community and police. The board provides a venue for the local municipalities to coordinate and collaborate on strategies to address common issues.

  • One (1) elected official from each of the four municipalities;
  • One (1) to jointly represent the communities of Addington Highlands Township and Stone Mills Township;
