Orillia OPP station complete under phase two of modernization project

ORILLIA, ONT. — A new, $20-million Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) detachment in Orillia, Ont. is officially open.

The project was delivered by Infrastructure Ontario through its public-private partnership model.

Bird Capital OMP Project Co Inc. was selected to lead the design and build of all 10 detachments under the OPP Modernization – Phase 2 project, which was meant to replace aging OPP facilities across the province that are at the end of their lifespan.

The project, which includes a collision reporting centre, initially consisted of nine detachments with a budget of $182 million, was revaluated at $201 million last June to accommodate the construction of a 10th detachment in Cambridge, indicates a release.

The new detachment in Orillia provides 34,000 square feet of space, a design to support ever-changing technology requirements including facilities to secure evidence, 12 holding cells, closed-circuit television technology and other advanced security features, adds the release.

The new facility is accessible and designed to meet the LEED Silver standard.

“Infrastructure projects like this new OPP detachment are essential to the safety and security of our communities,” said Minister of Infrastructure Kinga Surma, in a statement. “We will continue to work with communities like Orillia to invest in local priorities and build, renew and modernize the infrastructure that our law enforcement frontline heroes and the people of Ontario rely on to stay safe.”
