What is the responsibility of the OPP versus the durham regional police?

Editor's Note: The Ontario Provincial Police is funded by the provincial government. The Durham Regional Police Service is a municipal agency funded by the municipalities of the region. The OPP provide policing services in the areas of "...International border enforcement and intelligence units, provincial emergency response, joint force operations and specialized services in support of municipal police services across the province..."

In Durham Region, the OPP patrol highway 401 and Highway 12 and may work with local authorities on province-wide investigations. For more information, view their web site at
