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.

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. Our mission is to make Ravenna a safe place to live, work and visit.

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

Today The Ravenna Police Association wrapped up another successful year of our annual Shop with a Cop program. This year we were able to take over 100 children shopping. We would like to say thank you to the Elks Lodge of Ravenna, for providing breakfast to participating families and to all our volunteers. Also, thank you to Wal-Mart for hosting the event. We also would like to extend a special thank you to all of our volunteers and to everyone that donated their time and money. The Shop with a Cop program would not be a success without all of you taking time during this busy season to make a child’s holiday a little bit brighter. Thank you and Merry Christmas! ...

Let’s not forget to thank Ben for his hard work, doing good deeds to earn $100. For a little boy or girl.

Such a wonderful job everyone does for this and it’s a job well done by all. Merry Christmas.

I appreciate all involved. I've only been back in Ohio for 6 months, but am proud of my new hometown. I was born and raised in Maumee Ohio.
