Major Crime

The Major Crime Unit

Major Crimes includes crimes against persons such as murder, serious assaults, sex offences, abductions, missing persons, and some robberies.  Other complex cases may be assigned, as well.

  • The Major Crime Unit includes the Sexual Offences Unit.
  • Many of these cases are investigated according to Ontario Major Case Management standards and principles, as set out in the Police Services Act and the Ontario Case Management Manual.
  • The Sex Offences Unit investigates all threshold and historical sexual assaults, manages high-risk sexual offenders, supervises the Ontario Sex Offender registrants, and investigates internet-related sex offences.  This team works in partnership with community agencies such as the Womens Health Care Centre, Kawartha Sexual Assault Center, Circles of Support and Accountability, Probation, Parole, and Kawartha Children’s Aid Society.  This ensures a comprehensive response and investigation.
