Construction starts on forensic identification unit in Ontario

Tillsonburg, ON – Construction of a new Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Forensic Identification Unit in Tillsonburg is underway. The new facility, announced last year, will bring together the existing forensic units in London and Simcoe under one roof and provide for enhanced capacity to handle many new forensic technologies.

“This new facility will allow forensic unit officers to utilize the most up-to-date tools in forensic sciences,” said OPP Commissioner Julian Fantino. “This facility will play an important role in our fight against crime throughout southwestern Ontario.
