The Town of LaSalle is a healthy, vibrant, prosperous, safe and caring Ontario community with a diverse and growing population of just over 33,000. Located in the northwest quadrant of Essex County, LaSalle’s boundaries include the Town of Amherstburg to the south, the Town of Tecumseh to the east, the City of Windsor to the north, and the Detroit River on its western edge.

Policing the Town of LaSalle also has its own unique characteristics. LaSalle is one of the largest and fastest growing communities in Essex County; however, the land area is just 65 square kilometres. While the Town has a mix of manufacturing and agriculture industry, LaSalle is best characterized as a residential community with many residents working in the automotive and related manufacturing sectors in nearby Windsor.

LaSalle is situated next to the City of Windsor which has a population of over 230,000 and is located within 8 kilometres from the City of Detroit, Michigan, and its 5 million residents. One of the busiest highways in North America, Highway 401 passes through the northeastern edge of the Town. LaSalle is also near two international border crossings including the Ambassador Bridge and the soon to be opened Gordie Howe Bridge. The Detroit River, an international waterway, which forms the Town’s western boundary for approximately 7.2 kilometres has as many as 1,500 vessels that are moored in the local marinas during summer months.
