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.

Unfortunately this hits all too close tooo home thanks for keeping the community safe and keeping us reminded and accountable

Mine was gone through Took everything out of counsel tossed it around car. Took 85 cents m, my insurance card, and icebreakers and air freshener All about 5.00 worth. Bet he dont stink for a minute. Lol. Next time he will be laying on ground cause I have hot wire connected to it. Anything topens doors. Gets shocked

Lived here for years no problem, GF thought I was silly for NOT locking my door as never had a problem, but locking them now, didn't steal anything but my glove box this morning was all over my front seat, clearly quickly rummaged through. Oddly enough kept $10 in there for emergencies, and whomever did it, didn't take it, so what the heck was the point?

He got into my car last night. We have him on camera. I hung up some signs. We have named him the crack head car bandit. He is a younger white male with short brown hair, very thin, and a full sleeve of tattoos. We have him on camera and a good shot of his face. Please message me if you're interested in seeing his picture. We have already forwarded it to the police. The community really needs to step up here to catch this guy.

He got my cars few weeks ago. Or someone did.

The one you guys are talking about that lives on Lincoln is only in for 30 days so far.

A thief is a thief. What does being a Coleman patient have to do with it?

I understand that we need to hold ourselves accountable and lock our doors. But when you know who it is and won’t do anything to him.. you’re accountable

Locked and security lights and home security ...thank you for alerts!! Love our Men In Blue ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ‘ฎ๐Ÿ‘ฎ๐Ÿ‘ฎ

Last year when I lived in Ravenna on Fairview all of our cars got broken into because we didn't lock them

Aww mako is adorable!!!

Stereotyping? I have seen business men looking break the law

Wow what a cutie pie

Del sounds like you’re not alone

Samantha Billups time to get the mouse traps back out.

State Route 5 area got hit as well

Is it by the same guy everyone reported but no one will do anything about?

This truck was spotted in Ravenna. Please keeps eyes open. But stolen from Brady Lake Rd Ravenna/Kent

Looks like me and Rocky my 75lb rotti is guna be taking some late night strolls in our Park..I am hoping when we do we run into these thief's cause I will guarantee I will unleash the fury of my way too over protective services dog. ๐Ÿ˜˜ May want to stop coming to our Park cause guess what I got 2 of these big ass fuckers and they both listen to their momma..... Who needs a gun with over 200 lbs of pissed Rottweiler?
