Police Department

Police Department

Our well-trained officers handle all aspects of criminal investigations. We handle the initial report, the follow-up investigations, the filing of charges, and the testimony in court.

Traffic enforcement is conducted as a routine matter of daily business. A small traffic unit will monitor areas where the citizens request additional enforcement.

Hinckley Police Personnel investigate all traffic accidents, regardless of severity. Our officers have the expertise to reconstruct major accidents and are constantly updating their training.

The department offers police services 24 hours a day, every day of the year. At the present time, the only function that is handled by an outside agency is dispatch. The Medina County Sheriff’s Office provides dispatch services.

We are part of the Cuyahoga Regional Information Sharing group. This CRIS group is comprised of 55 Police departments across northeastern Ohio. It is interfaced with the Law Enforcement Automated Data System (LEADS) which provides officers with enormous amounts of information pertaining to driving records, vehicle registration, criminal activity (past and present), suspicious persons, wanted individuals, etc.

In addition to normal police activity, the members of the department offer the following:
