Temporary Facilities Closures and Temporary Reduction in Services

Effective immediately, to further assist in preventing transmission of COVID-19, all Halton Regional Police Service locations are closed for non-emergencies until further notice. We acknowledge that this will cause an inconvenience, but it is paramount that we all do our part at this time to ensure our collective health and safety.

For collision reporting, individuals can continue to attend our 20 Division location at (95 Oak Walk Drive, Oakville) to make a report between the hours of 10am and 6pm, seven-days-a-week. Those individuals can expect to be asked a series of screening questions related to COVID-19 to ensure the safety of our members.

Until further notice, Freedom of Information Requests are to be made via mail only. Freedom of Information Release (in-person pick-up) is suspended until further notice.

Non-criminal fingerprinting is suspended until further notice.
