Grenville OPP Welcomes New Detachment Commander

Prescott – The Grenville detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is happy to welcome NEW Inspector Joshua Kingsley. Inspector Kingsley began policing with the OPP Kapuskasing Detachment as a constable in 2009.

Inspector Kingsley later worked as a detective before promoting to Sergeant and transferring to the Leeds Detachment in 2016. While working in Leeds County, he became the detachment Staff Sergeant. Prior to his recent official promotion to the rank of Inspector, he has served successfully for six months as Grenville Detachment’s Acting Inspector.

Originally from Sudbury, Ontario, Inspector Kingsley now resides in Augusta Township with his wife and children.

Inspector Kingsley has a very hands-on approach to his job and can often be found on the road supporting his members, managing high-priority calls, attending community meetings, and participating in community events like the upcoming Christmas parade!

‘You cannot build a reputation on what you are going to do, I plan on leading by example and am enthusiastic to continue working with our community partners and to ensure Grenville County residents have access to our innovative approach to policing strategies and mental health resources.”
