When contacting the Police
about non-urgent matters
The Thunder Bay Police Service provides policing services to the residents of the Municipality of Oliver Paipoonge under contract as governed by the Police Services Act of Ontario. The community based policing model utilized by the members attached to the Oliver Paipoonge Policing Unit has been very successful at resolving incidents as well as crime and related issues within the municipality. This success can also be attributed to the close working relationship that the officers have with the Mayor, members of council, organizations within the municipality, and the community at large.
The Oliver Paipoonge Policing Unit maintains a high visibility presence in the municipality by speaking to community groups, including the local schools, and by participating in a number of community events such as the Kakabeka Street Fair and Murillo Fair. The Unit is quite proud of winning 1st place for the second consecutive year at the Slate River Plow Match – “Celebrity Division”.
The Thunder Bay Police Service provides a total of 6 patrol officers and a highly visible police vehicle as part of their commitment to the Municipality of Oliver Paipoonge.
