The Cobourg police are confident in the quality policing they provide for the Town of Cobourg and the safety of the community is always upheld to the highest regard. The Cobourg police have a senior officer on-call 24/7 and a reciprocal relationship with the Port Hope Police Service, and the Ontario Provincial Police, should there be an emergency or the need for backup. The Cobourg Police Services Board, Cobourg Police Service, and the Cobourg Police Association have worked collaboratively implementing short-term and long-term staffing solutions, all the while increasing drug enforcement activity, community engagement and community policing with local agencies.
The police service shifts and roster (number of employees, overtime worked, etc.) are confidential and Human Resources related. When an employee publishes this information, it is taken seriously by the Cobourg Police Services Board and Cobourg police. The president of the Cobourg police association work closely with the Cobourg Police Services Board and the Cobourg police to investigate these situations.
