Introduction

175 South Street
175 South Street

The Gananoque Police Service is a small town police service, which has served the Town of Gananoque since around 1863. GPS has grown with the Town to its' current size of 14 uniformed officers. The Service has moved around in the Town several times throughout its history; and has been in its' current location since 2004. Prior to 2004 the Gananoque Police and Fire Services spent approximately 40 years located in an old Armouries building at 175 South Street, the building currently occupied by the Firehall Theatre. In 2004 the new Gananoque Emergency Services building was built at 340 Herbert Street, and both the Police and Fire Departments were relocated there.The Service is one of the few remaining small Town Police Services left in Ontario, and one of the last to still have its own Communications Centre.
