The boards govern the municipal police forces and in the case of O.P.P. contract locations, serve as advisory bodies.
The population of the Township of Tay Valley did not exceed 25,000 according to the last enumeration. The council of the Township of Tay Valley has entered into a contract with the Ontario Provincial Police to provide policing services. The composition of the board is currently determined as three. Board members include the head of the municipal council or, if the head chooses not to be a member of the board, another member of the council appointed by resolution of the council; one person appointed by resolution of the council, who is neither a member of the council nor an employee of the muncipality; and one person appointed by the Lieutenant Governor in Council. Boards elect a chair and may elect a vice-chair. If an appointee of the Lieutenant Governor in Council is unable to serve, the Minister of Community Safety and Correctional Services may appoint a replacement to serve until the Lieutenant Governor in Council selects a new appointee.
