The South Simcoe Police Service is a municipal police force in Ontario, Canada providing service to the municipalities of Innisfil and Bradford West Gwillimbury. It came into existence on January 1, 1997, through the amalgamation of the Innisfil Police Service and Bradford West Gwillimbury Police Service. The neighbouring Barrie Police Service was part of the initial proposal but did not participate in the amalgamation.
The police force is also responsible for waterway policing on the Holland River and parts of Lake Simcoe.
The South Simcoe Police Service has 74 officers and 43 civilian staff members. The police force also has a complement of auxiliary officers.
The Chief of Police from 1997 to 2011 was Bruce J Davis. On April 16, 2012 Rick Beazley was appointed Chief. He was the former Chief of Police for the Strathroy-Caradoc Police Service.
Municipal councillors for The Town of Innisfil have been critical of the 6.75% budget increase for 2011 - with at least one councillor calling for the municipalities to look at other policing options. Bradford West Gwillimbury is also looking at other policing options - with counsel voting in favour of asking the Ontario Provincial Police for a proposal to provide policing.

Famous quotes containing the words service, police and/or south:
“For those parents from lower-class and minority communities ... [who] have had minimal experience in negotiating dominant, external institutions or have had negative and hostile contact with social service agencies, their initial approaches to the school are often overwhelming and difficult. Not only does the school feel like an alien environment with incomprehensible norms and structures, but the families often do not feel entitled to make demands or force disagreements.”
—Sara Lawrence Lightfoot (20th century)
“Well, intuition isnt much help in police work. Facts are what we need.”
—Crane Wilbur (18891973)
“The cloud was so dark that it needed all the bright lights that could be turned upon it. But for four years there was a contagion of nobility in the land, and the best blood North and South poured itself out a libation to propitiate the deities of Truth and Justice. The great sin of slavery was washed out, but at what a cost!”
—M. E. W. Sherwood (18261903)
