The Government of Ontario establishes the framework for policing through the Police Services Act, and imposes more detailed requirements through prescribed standards and regulations for police services. The Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services has the statutory authority to establish guidelines and directives for the administration of law enforcement and public safety in Ontario. At the local level, each municipality maintaining a police service is required through legislation to establish a structure, commonly known as a Police Services Board, through which these standards and regulations are administered.

Board members include:
Municipal Member – Mayor Scott Mackey (Board Chair)

The Township of Chatsworth Police Services Board meets six (6) times per year.
