Moving day work is scheduled for September 14 to 16 and that means some temporary limitations on in-person and phone service for the detachment.
Neither the old OPP detachment building at the corner of Higginson Street and Cartier Boulevard, nor the new one on Cameron Street will be open to the public during the three days scheduled for relocating OPP office equipment and other gear, and setting up the new phone and Internet service lines.
During the relocation, anyone calling the OPP general office number may be directed to the voicemail system to leave a message.
The move will not affect the 911 emergency call system. All 911 calls will be answered. The toll-free number for non-urgent messages at 1-888-310-1122 will also continue to work.
OPP officers will continue to respond to urgent and non-urgent calls during the relocation period between the old and new detachment buildings. Once the move is finished there will be controlled access to the new detachment office as part of public health safety for staff and residents during the COVID-19 pandemic.
