Criminal Background Checks & Vulnerable Sector Screening:
Attention Non-Profit Goups, Churches, Schools, Individuals
The Dutton OPP Office does not meet the appropriate physical features that are required for the safety and security of administrative staff processing criminal checks. Therefore this service is no longer being provided at the Dutton Office. Criminal record checks are still processed at the John Wise Line Detachment, and in most cases can be processed in 15 minutes. The OPP encourage anyone requiring this service to call the detachment to ensure you have all required information before driving to St. Thomas.
OPP - Citizen Self-Reporting
The Ontario Provincial Police is pleased to offer Citizen Self Reporting, an alternative reporting option that allows the public to report specific crimes to police via the internet, anywhere, anytime. The OPP’s Citizens Self Reporting system allows members of the public to use a computer or mobile device to report an incident without requiring an officer to attend the scene.
Citizen Self Reporting is simple and convenient and can be used when reporting incidents that do not involve injury or a suspect, or a crime that is not an emergency. The use of this new system is completely optional. Police will still attend a call for service if desired.
