Garrettsville – The Garrettsville Police Department is pleased to announce that it has been selected to receive funding in the amount of $6,174.90 through the Ohio Office of Criminal Justice Services (OCJS) and the Federal 2015 Justice Assistance Grant for Law Enforcement (JAG-LE) Program.

The funding will be used to purchase a new audio/video recording system to be installed in a patrol cruiser. This equipment will allow encounters with the public to be documented for the protection of both the public and the police officer and will be used in court proceedings. Funding will also allow for the purchase of a emergency light bar with modern warning technology to replace an aging lightbar currently in use.

We thank the State of Ohio Office of Criminal Justice Services for awarding our agency these funds, and the Village of Garrettsville for supporting the pursuit of this award.
