Port Hope Police have had reports of packages being stolen from the front door of residences. Please if you are receiving packages to your door and you are not at home upon delivery please make sure a neighbour or someone you trust removes the package to prevent a theft. If you track your package you should have an accurate date of arrival at your door.

We want to remind the Community that there has been a " no turning right on a red light" installed at the corner of Ridout Street and Toronto Road, Port Hope. This means if you are turning north onto Toronto Road you cannot turn right on the red light. Port Hope Police are conducting focused patrol in the area and giving out cautions at this time

Although Port Hope Police will not arbitrarily be stopping people solely for checking on your travels during the recent stay-at-home order it is important to remember to stay home and help flatten the curve.
