In March 2019, the Ontario government passed the CSPA as part of the Comprehensive Ontario Police Services Act, 2019. On its proclamation date of April 1, 2024, the CSPA replaced the Police Services Act. 

Under the CSPA, effective April 1, 2024, the Shelburne Police Services Board became the Shelburne OPP Detachment Board. The Board is one of the four OPP detachment boards in Dufferin County following the Ministry’s consolidation of Dufferin OPP detachment boards from eight to four under O.Reg. 135/24. In conjunction with that consolidation, the Board’s membership was increased from five to seven members and the composition of Board membership has changed.

The Board's seven members serve on a part-time basis. Under O. Reg. 135/24 three Board members are Town Council members, three are community members appointed by Council and one is appointed by the Ontario Government (provincial appointee).
