Purpose and Function

The primary function of Police Services Board (PSB) is to determine priorities and objectives for police services within the community. This must be done in consultation with the Detachment Commander, but input should be received from council, municipal staff, and police officers assigned to the community, as well as the public.

Norfolk County is governed by Section 10 of the Police Services Act. The relationship between the board and the municipal council is important. It is the council that enters into the written contract with the OPP and is responsible for the financial commitment.

The Board meets the third Wednesday of every other month at 9:00 am in the Norfolk County Council Chambers located at:

County Administration Building Council Chambers
50 Colborne Street S., Second Floor
Simcoe, ON N3Y 4H3

Strategic Business Plan 2020 – 2022

The Norfolk Police Services Board (The NCPSB) in partnership with our Chief of Police and Norfolk County Council have developed this Strategic Policing Business Plan to serve the needs of our citizens. The Plan is to be a roadmap to the way policing is applied in Norfolk County and a living document that can be adjusted to meet any important influence of change. It will also serve as a template of metrics against which the Chief of Police will be assessed by the NCPSB.
