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. 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

Each school in the Ravenna school district nominates someone who has made a big impact for our staff and students throughout the year. Willyard nominated Officer Meyers.

"On a typical school day at Willyard you can find him opening car doors at morning dropoff, walking students hand in hand to their classrooms, ripping open ketchup and ranch packs at lunch, and high-fiving students at recess.
He is a friendly face to have at our building almost daily and provides positive interactions between our students and police. Not only does Officer Meyers show up when he’s on duty, he often comes to help out on his days off! Serving sno-cones at the end of the year? He’s there. Reading books to classrooms during our Kindness Week? You can count on him. Showing up to assemblies? There he is with a big smile on his face. And that’s what’s really the most important thing. Showing up. Being present. Not just when you have to be, but because you want to be.
Officer Meyers shows our students that every day. He has had a huge impact on our school and we could not be happier to share him with the Ravenna community."

Who Stands in the way of Everyone's Freedom && Everyone who Actually Tries to Make any kinda Real Change in This World && Terrorizes/Robs The Public on a Regular Basis && Protects the Corrupt Government from Anyone being able to get to Them? "THE POLICE." Who Carries out All These Terrorists Attack's Commanded by The Government on All These Other Countries Including Our Own? "THE MILITARY." I Think U All have made it Crystal Clear What Side U All Stand For. #PowerToThePeople #ItsTimeForAnarchy ✊

β€œEvery day, we ask a great deal of the men and women of our Nation’s law enforcement agencies; from ensuring public safety, to responding to incidents involving domestic violence, substance use disorders, mental health challenges, and homelessness, often with limited resources. Every morning, our Nation’s law enforcement officers pin on a badge and go to work, not knowing what the day will bring, and hoping to come home safely.” This week we recognize the incredible courage of our Nation’s police officers and honor the fallen heroes, whose ultimate sacrifice we can never repay.

Only reason any of these Wars happen in the first place is All because the Leader's of the World having Disagreements with one another. Strictly over Power Greed && Control over the Masses. And they've literally got Everyone to Believe that these Wars have to do with Protecting the Ppl && The Country. When in Reality it's jus the Opposite!!!! Instead of Protecting they end up Blowing Innocent Ppl && Animals to pieces along with Their Homes Etc. And then They get Labeled as Heroes by Everyone. The Only True Terrorists of the World are the Leader's && The Order Followers who are ready to Attack on Command. #WakeTfUpAlready

Last night, Captain Jason Smallfield presented Life Saving Awards to Brittanie Larson and Christopher Taylor. Brittanie and Christopher were instrumental in evacuating residents from an apartment fire at 629 Hazen Ave. on March 18th, 2024. Brittanie and Christopher both acted quickly to assist residents of the complex to safely exit the building. Their calm, courageous and quick response helped to ensure there were no serious injuries.
