About the Ravenna Police Department

The Ravenna City Police Department proudly serves the 11,500+ citizens of the City of Ravenna, with a staff of 27 sworn Law Enforcement Officers and 11 Communications Officers. The department is equipped with a state of the art computer aided dispatch system, mobile data terminals, enhanced 911, and other advanced technology to better serve its citizens. Our officers answer over 20,000 calls for service each year ranging from public assists such as vehicle lockouts to more serious criminal offenses such as assaults, burglaries and robberies. In case of more serious tactical incidents, the department belongs to Metro Swat which is a multi-jurisdictional agency that further enhances our response capabilities. The department works with a Federal Task Force through the DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency), which investigates illegal drug activity in Ravenna and throughout the county.

A Message from the Chief

On behalf of the dedicated men and women of the Ravenna Police Department, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the Ravenna Police Department website.

The Ravenna Police Department is committed to providing the highest possible level of police service to our community. The Ravenna Police Department will use every tool at its disposal to prevent crime, disorder and reduce the level of fear in the community.

We, as the Ravenna Police Department, will do so with an unwavering commitment to partner with the community we serve by practicing community policing and problem solving, and treating citizens fairly and with respect. I strongly encourage our residents to reach out to us when you have a question or concern so it can be addressed. There is no greater honor than that of public service and we thank you for the opportunity to serve.

As your Chief of Police, I am honored to serve this community. I grew up in Ravenna, live here and raised my family here. I have a strong personal connection to the City. I am 100% committed to the citizens and the men and women of the Ravenna Police Department to whom I have been entrusted to lead.

Sincerely,
Jeff Wallis

** Memorial Day Information**
Ravenna’s Memorial Day observance will start at 10:00 a.m. on May 29, when a combined Honor Guard of American Legion Post 331 and VFW Post 1055 will present a 21-gun salute and taps on the courthouse lawn.

Participants will proceed to Maple Grove Cemetery, where both posts will participate in a short memorial service.

The Rev. Ron Murphy will offer an invocation, and VFW Post 1055’s Chesty Puller Young Marines will lead the Pledge of Allegiance and national anthem. Mayor Frank Seman will read a proclamation honoring veterans and patriotic citizens. Representatives from the Chesty Puller Young Marines will recite the Gettysburg Address from memory and “Flanders Fields,” a poem memorializing WWI soldiers.

Girl Scout Troop 915 will honor all deceased veterans, laying flowers at the base of a veteran’s memorial. The VFW and American Legion Auxiliary units will then perform a bridging ceremony, lowering the flags and dropping flowers into the pond to further memorialize those who have been killed in action.

Both posts will then perform a second 21-gun salute and taps, and there will be a cannon volley from Baker’s Battery 1st Ohio Light Artillery Battery. The ceremony will end with the Rev. Ron Murphy offering a final benediction.

Both events are open to the public.
