Governing Police

Police Services Boards govern police with their jurisdictions primarily by:

  • Establishing priorities, objectives and policies for police services in their community;
  • Monitoring performance of their police service and its leader

This is an extremely exciting time in policing and police governance in Ontario, with many reforms in the works. 

The Ontario Association of Police Service Boards (OAPSB) is the leading voice of police governance in Ontario. We serve our members and stakeholders, as well as the general public, by; 

  • Helping local police service boards fulfill their legislated responsibilities by providing training and networking opportunities and facilitating the transfer of knowledge; and 
  • Advocating for improvements in public safety laws and regulations, practices and funding mechanisms. 

Our membership includes police service board members, police and law enforcement officials, and other persons involved in policing and public safety.
