It was established in 1879 and currently consists of 23 members, including 13 police officers, 4 auxiliary police officers, 2 civilian support members. These members provide 24/7 emergency response to approximately 5500 residents responding to more that 4000 calls per year.
These members work out of Shelburne Town Hall located at 203 Main Street, East in Shelburne, Ontario.
The Chief of Police is the highest ranking officer. The position currently belongs to Kent Moore, who was appointed in 2005.
The Special Investigations Unit
The actions of the Shelburne Police are examined by the Special Investigations Unit, a civilian agency responsible for investigating circumstances involving police and civilians that have resulted in a death, serious injury, or allegations of sexual assault. The SIU is dedicated to maintaining one law, ensuring equal justice before the law among both the police and the public. They assure that the criminal law is applied appropriately to police conduct, as determined through independent investigations, increasing public confidence in the police services. Complaints involving police conduct that do not result in a serious injury or death must be referred to the appropriate police service or to another oversight agency, such as the Ontario Civilian Police Commission.
