Media Release - June 28, 2023



On June 25, 2023, the Port Hope Police Service identified a network issue, which an investigation
has now revealed to be a cyber incident.

At no time has our ability to respond to calls been compromised. Our 9-1-1 system for emergency
calls has not been affected, and our telephone line for non-urgent concerns remains operational.

We understand this may cause concerns. This is an active ongoing investigation, and we are
