The OPP will be closing their Smooth Rock Falls office next month.
After a review of OPP detachments in the North East Region, a decision has been made to close their Smooth Rock Falls office, formerly part of their James Bay detachment.
A police statement says they are always evaluating their operations to keep policing affordable for all communities being served.
A major factor in closing the office is its lack of use, as police vehicles are now equipped with mobile workstations allowing officers to complete most administrative duties from within the cruiser.
The OPP want to note that even with the closure of the physical office, the front line policing services within Smooth Rock Falls will not be reduced.
The official closure of the office will take place on December 1st, 2017.
