OPP also has got Arms granted 22 April 1998.

The Bear denotes spirit and determination. It also features in the Crest of the Arms of Ontario. The coronet vallary symbolises protection and preparedness. The Osprey symbolises watchfulness. The Supporters symbolise strength and courage, the are made semé of Ermine spots as a reference to the Fauna of Northern Ontario. They are gorged with Trillium Flowers which are the Provincial Flower of Ontario. The Royal Crowns denote the role of the OPP to uphold the Queen's (or King's) Peace.
