Community Policing

Tay Township Volunteer Community Policing Committee

The Tay Township Volunteer Community Policing Committee is composed of volunteers from across Tay Township and is supported by two members of Council and two members of the Southern Georgian Bay Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police.

The committee meets on a monthly basis (except July and August) at the Township office and has been formed to help support and facilitate interaction between the community and the police.

Improved communications between the community and the police is a primary objective of the committee.

The committee plans on hosting a series of information evenings that will focus on community issues related to public safety.

Contacting Your Local Police

  • 1-888-310-1122 is the non-emergency line. The call will be answered unless they are dealing with other emergencies. This is the best option if you are looking for enforcement action.
  • Go to to report traffic complaints of ATV/UTV/Recreational vehicles if they are on the roadway. The OPP track and map this information, giving them a more accurate idea of where issues are occurring.

Medic Alert Safely Home

The Community Policing Committee has found that the Ontario Provincial Police can access a vulnerable persons registry offered by Medic Alert to assist them in locating missing persons or can help with police interactions with vulnerable individuals.  If you wish to register individuals in your care with Medic Alert, information is available on Medic Alerts' website.  Be sure to advise Ontario Provincial Police call takers if someone is registered in this program as the registry is not automatically checked for every call.

Please note that the Medic Alert Safely Home service is offered by a private company not affiliated with Tay Township or the Ontario Provincial Police.  Information here about Medic Alert is for information purposes only.  Individuals obtaining service from Medic Alert should ensure that the service is right for them.
