The structures being replaced are an average of 40 to 60 years old and are well past their expected lifespan. They need to be replaced so the OPP can offer the best possible service to the people it serves.

New detachments will range in size from 17,000 to 35,000 square feet.

  • CCTV system for cell monitoring.
  • Secure sallyport allowing for direct access to secure holding cells and prisoner processing area.
  • Buildings meet new accessibility standards in the public area.
  • Spacious Exhibit/Evidence Vaults with a proper processing area.
  • Holding cells (Adult Male/Adult Female/YOA).
  • Modern building infrastructure to meet changing technology requirements.

Community and Green Benefits

  • The OPP and the communities it serves will benefit from enhanced community safety with the construction of nine new facilities.
  • The new detachments will be designed and built to meet the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver standard, which recognizes buildings with reduced environmental impacts.

Economic Benefits

  • The project will create and support hundreds of direct and indirect jobs.
