McGuinty Government Improving Community Safety

Ministry of the Solicitor General

Residents of Temagami will be better served with the opening of a new Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) detachment.


The new 4,500-square-foot building will allow the OPP to more effectively serve the community's needs by consolidating the entire detachment, including the marine unit, previously spread over three buildings.

The new facility offers ample space to accommodate OPP officers, civilians and volunteer members who serve the community, and features upgraded telephone and information technology systems and other modern supports to meet changing technology and policing requirements.

Quick Facts

  • The McGuinty government is investing $50 million to replace or upgrade facilities for front-line police officers to reflect Ontario's changing demographics, increased standards and new technological requirements.
  • The Temagami detachment is one of 14 new OPP detachments and offices that the government is investing in across Ontario.
