In order to ensure the health of our employees and the public we serve, we request that members of the public avoid coming to the Owen Sound Police Station.  

The Police Station will remain open for emergency situations and where persons are required to report to the station pursuant to a court order.

If you are unsure whether you need to attend the police station, please call ahead. 

If you do require police assistance, you will be asked to disclose whether you are exhibiting any respiratory like symptoms as a courtesy so that members and employees may respond accordingly.

In some situations, officers may be able to speak with individuals by phone, or at a safe social distance.  

If you require a Criminal Record Check, please do not attend the police station.

On Monday, March 23rd we will have a portal on our website to obtain criminal record checks.

Processing time will be approximately 2 to 3 weeks.

For any other reports and licencing that you may require, please contact the records office at 519-376-1234 ext. 216

For non-emergencies, dial 519-376-1234 or use our on-line reporting system-   When using our on-line system please make sure;
"    This is NOT an Emergency

"    There are No Known suspects

We appreciate the public's support during this difficult time.

The Owen Sound Police Service is a proud and professional organization that will continue to provide superior police service to its community.

The steps above are being taken out of an abundance of caution and in an effort to reduce risk and to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
