Welcome to the Municipal Law Enforcement Officers' Association Internet site. This site has been developed to better inform our 1,800 members of dedicated municipal law enforcement officers, retired members and the general public about our Association and its activities.
The Municipal Law Enforcement Officers’ Association is a non-profit professional Association representing Municipal Law Enforcement Officers throughout the Province of Ontario. It was first established in 1979. In 1985 it was incorporated as a non-profit organization. Currently, the Association represents over 1,800 Municipal Law Enforcement Officers. Our membership ranges from the small rural communities to the large urban centres. We also enjoy associate memberships with individuals throughout North America. Municipal Law Enforcement Officers are appointed by Council under the provisions of the Police Services Act or other Provincial Statute to enforce local municipal by-laws and other applicable Provincial Statutes. Duties may include enforcement of laws relating to:
Business and trade licensing
Noise Abatement and Control
Animal control including DOLA

Signs and Advertising Devices, etc...
Municipal Law Enforcement Officers may also be responsible for prosecutions and other legal actions undertaken by their municipality.
