Help Keep The Noelville Police Detachment Open
DID YOU HEAR?
The Sudbury East Chamber is joining in the campaign with the Sudbury East municipalities to advocate for the Noelville OPP station to remain open.
This is a very important matter that will affect every single person in the Sudbury East community.
Every minute counts
How will this affect you?
-Response time would be affected. The closest station will be atleast 45min away.
-There will be a negative impact on our tourism industry and our economic development. It will be difficult to attract new businesses or citizens.
- This is the last detachment left in our area
- There has been major growth in families in our areas since Covid. This means more children in our schools and a greater demand for services, new businesses opening, etc. The population of the 6 municipalities (Markstay-Warren, Killarney, French River, St. Charles, Dokis First Nation and Henvy Inlet) is approximately 7,000. With seasonal visitors: approximately 16,000! This is not including unorganized townships or tourists that book lodges, campgrounds, Airbnb’s, etc.

Take some time and look for stories and news articles online from other stations that have closed around us. I've included links for a few news articles from 2016, 2020 and 2022.
I encourage you to take a minute to read through them as they contain some interesting information on other closures that have already happened in our area and how quickly the rumors turned into a reality with very little warning.
