Records commonly requested include policies and procedures, accident and crime reports, budget data, 911 calls and crime statistics. In order for requests to be filled quickly and correctly, specific information is needed.

Public Records can be requested via email, verbally or in writing and can be done so anonymously. Copies are delivered by US Mail, contracted carrier or, in some cases, electronically.

There may be a charge for making copies of records.

It is the policy of the Division of Police to adhere to the Public Records Act of the State of Ohio. The Division maintains many records that may be of interest which are available to the public (with few exceptions). This openness is meant to inspire faith in the police and to ensure that resources are used wisely and in the public interest.
