By-Law Calls

Effective May 1, 2016, the Ottawa Police Service will respond to by-law 
calls only when there is a known risk of serious bodily harm or death, when 
there are indicators of danger for serious bodily harm to a person(s) or 
when By-Law Services are on scene and require police assistance.

OPS will cease responding to by-law calls that do not have a public safety 
aspect such as stated above. All calls for service pertaining to by-law 
infractions, which are not determined to have a serious public safety 
component, shall be referred to the City of Ottawa By-Law Services.
