Policing the Lakefield is being turned over to the new Peterborough Police Service. The change takes effect on January 1, 2015. The short term agreement has been approved by the Township, the City of Peterborough and the Peterborough-Lakefield Police Services Board. Services are expected to remain consistent, including: 911 access, 24/7 coverage and public access to the Lakefield Policing office on Queen Street in Lakefield. Lakefield residents and business should receive further information in the mail in the coming weeks.
