Description and Service Details
Description (Service) Role of Provincial Offences Court (POC) 
In May 2000, the Province of Ontario transferred the responsibility for the delivery of the administrative, prosecutorial and court support functions under the Provincial Offences Act to the Municipality of Chatham-Kent. This transfer was part of the Province's strategy to realign provincial and municipal roles in the delivery of public services. As a result, the Municipality was required to establish its own administration and prosecution office and courtroom to deal with charges laid under the Provincial Offences Act. The Provincial Offences Act sets out the processes to be followed for administering and prosecuting charges laid by police and other enforcement agencies under provincial statutes and municipal by-laws.(Highway Traffic Act charges, Liquor License Act charges, Municipal By-laws, Ministry of Natural Resources and Ministry of Transportation Charges.)
