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 is a member of the Portage County Drug Task Force and also works with a Federal Task Force through the DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency), which investigates illegal drug activity in Ravenna and throughout the county.

COLUMBUS – During the upcoming Memorial Day weekend, May 22 through May 25, the Buckeye State Sheriff’s Association, the Ohio Association of Chiefs of Police and the Ohio State Highway Patrol will collaborate to ensure the safety of Ohioans by having officers highly visible on Ohio’s roadways to promote traffic safety.

As we move forward and transition to Ohio opening back up, we as law enforcement officers will be collective in our efforts to ensure the safety and security of citizens in our communities and motorists on our roadways,” said Stark County Sheriff George Maier.

Last year in Ohio, 12 fatal crashes killed 15 people during the Memorial Day weekend. Of those fatalities, eight were OVI-related and three were unbelted. Law enforcement officers are also reminding motorists to drive sober.

“As traffic counts begin to rise with businesses reopening and travel increasing, we need your help in renewing the focus on traffic safety,” Colonel Richard S. Fambro said. “We all have a responsibility to protect the safety of every person in Ohio including those using Ohio’s roadways.”

“To truly make an impact on the safety of Ohio’s roads we must all do our part,” said Ashland Police Chief David Marcelli. “That’s why we are asking you to think about traffic safety as you return to work and begin traveling again.”

You can help make Ohio safer by calling #677 or your local law enforcement agency to report drug activity and dangerous or impaired driving. Traffic safety is a shared responsibility, together we can save lives.

Ravenna Police Department would like to remind you please celebrate safely, don’t drink and drive, designate a sober driver, and on this Memorial Day Weekend remember and honor those who have served and sacrificed for our freedom. 🇱🇷🇱🇷🇱🇷#RavennaPD #DriveSober
