The Government of Ontario is investing $20 million to build a new Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) detachment in Clinton.
Construction has started on the Huron County detachment which is one of nine included in the OPP Modernization Phase 2 project designed to modernize some aging facilities. As part of a $182 million investment announced earlier this year to replace aging OPP facilities, the Clinton detachment construction is expected to be completed in late 2020. Bird Capital Limited Partnership is responsible for the overall contract.
The new Huron County detachment at 325 Albert St. in the southwestern Ontario community will provide space and infrastructure that support changing technology requirements, spacious and secure evidence vaults, six holding cells as well as CCTV and other advanced security features.
The OPP Modernization – Phase 2 project is being delivered through Infrastructure Ontario’s public-private partnership model, which transfers risks associated with design, construction and financing of the project to the private sector.
The building will be fully accessible and designed to meet the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver standard.
