170th Anniversary of our Guelph Police Service

On this day in 1840 “a proclamation was passed to create the District of Wellington.  With Guelph as the administrative seat of the District, Guelph was given rights to “Town” status, which enabled it to establish a municipal police force.  The Chief Constable appointed in 1840 was John Jones, but he was also an appointed officer of the District of Wellington”.

Happy anniversary to our Guelph Police Service.
