The DRPS Media Relations desk will be closed December 22, 25, 26, 29, 2017 for the holidays. It will reopen December 27 and 28, 2017 and then return to full operation on Tuesday, January 2, 2018.

The DRPS will continue to issue media releases on major issues and Tweet major road closures throughout the holidays.

During the holiday season, normal after-hours and weekend protocols remain in place. Duty Inspectors will be available for daily media checks at 1-888-579-1520 ext. 5555 between 07h45 and 08h15 and again between 15h45 and 16h15.

If the Duty Inspector is not available during these windows due to operational demands, please leave a message at ext. 5555 or contact the Communications/9-1-1 Unit supervisor at ext. 6600 and ask to speak to the Duty Inspector.

In addition, for more immediate information on general occurrences in Oshawa, Whitby and Clarington, call the Staff Sergeant at Central East Division (ext. 1736). For general occurrences in Ajax or Pickering, call the Staff Sergeant at West Division (ext. 2525). They can answer immediate road closure and motor vehicle collision location questions.

The Durham Regional Police Service would like to wish all of our media partners and the community at large a safe and happy holiday season and a healthy and prosperous New Year.
