The Field Operations Command is committed to working continually to earn the confidence of the citizens of and visitors to Ontario – a confidence that will not be taken for granted. Our women and men, both sworn officers and civilians, provide the best and most professional law-enforcement service possible and strive to build a culture of trust and open, honest dialogue with the communities they serve.
The Field Operations Command structure consists of 154 detachment and satellite locations, administered by five Regional Headquarters in London, Smiths Falls, Orillia, North Bay and Thunder Bay. Policing services are provided to over one million square kilometers of Ontario, and over 20,000 km of highways are patrolled.
In addition, the Command also includes the Aboriginal Policing Bureau. The primary mission of the OPP’s Aboriginal Policing Bureau is to provide support to First Nations policing in Ontario through policing assistance excellence and the building of mutually respectful partnerships with Aboriginal communities and First Nations police services.
