Inspector Bruce Kovack

The 67 members of North Division, led by Inspector Bruce Kovack protect the over 1,200 square kilometers of land and constituents that make up the for Northernmost communities in Durham Region: The picturesque townships of Brock, Scugog, Uxbridge and the Mississaguas of Scugog Island First Nation create the unique north.

Over 60,000 constituents call North Durham their home. Although almost exclusively rural in nature, the communities have many growing urban areas including; Beaverton, Cannington, Port Perry, Sunderland and Uxbridge.

During the warmer weather, the population considerably increases when Snowbirds return home and cottagers come to their rural retreats and waterfront communities. During this time, there is a significant increase in demand for police presence and response.

As North Durham covers more than fifty percent of the entire land mass of the Durham Region, geographical distances create one of the biggest challenges.

To improve service, store front Police offices are located in Beaverton and Uxbridge. Over 1100 km of trails, used by snowmobiles in the winter are patrolled by members of North Durham in co-operation with the provincial STOP officers, who are authorized as Provincial Offences Officers. In the summertime, the Durham Forest, Oak Ridges Moraine are patrolled by ATVs and the marine patrol Lake Scugog and lake Simcoe.

The Great Blue Heron Charity Casino, hosted by the Mississaguas of Scugog Island, First Nation, is one of two Casinos in the Region. The Casino has increased the traffic in Port Perry and of the Island. The Casino has proven to be an excellent corporate Citizen in working with our police service
