Commitment to Excellence in Service
We believe that policing should be interactive, results-oriented process between the police and the community. The process is information driven and should create partnerships between the police employees, the department and those we serve: Identify problems that impact the quality of life in the community, devise strategies to address those problems: and work collaboratively to sole them by utilizing all resources available.
“If we can’t get to you we can’t help”
Medina Township Police Department has a solution. We were able, through our Community Relations Grant, to purchase a limited number of Lock Boxes. We will be giving them away to township residents who meet certain criteria. If the resident is awarded a Lock Box we will install the lock box for you. The combination will be securely stored in our data base so if we ever need to gain entry to your home we will be able to do so with no damage to your home.
You only need to fill out an application and submit it to Chief Arbogast at Medina Township Police (firstname.lastname@example.org) or drop it off at our station located at 4877 Fenn Road, Medina, Ohio 44256. The application can be found on our web page or you can pick one up at the police station.
To be eligible for a lock box you must have one or more of the following situations:
- Over 65 and on a fixed income.
- Disabled at any age.
- Have a specific medical condition that would warrant emergency entry to get to you.
- A disabled veteran at any age.
- have a medical monitoring system
We are happy to offer this service free of charge to the citizens of Medina Township. If you have any questions on this program you may call Chief Arbogast at 330-721-1395. Together we can build a safer community.

How Can We Improve Community & Police Relations?
CHANGE STARTS WITH YOU….
The Ohio Collaborative Community-Police Advisory Board and the Office of Criminal Justice Services launched the Change Starts Here Campaign as a part of Ohio’s intensive agenda to improve community-police relations. Warhol & WALL ST, a Columbus-based lifestyle marketing and creative development company created the multi-pronged outreach and education campaign geared to raise awareness about community-police relations in Ohio.
As part of the overall scope of responsibility for the Ohio Collaborative, the public awareness campaign will:
-Educate law enforcement on how to better interact with the community they serve by focusing on appropriate and effective programming especially those programs that promote positive educational interactions between law enforcement and youth in the community;
-Educate the general public on strategies to improve community-police relations including how to appropriately interact with law enforcement and how law enforcement should appropriately interact with the public; and
-Educate the community about the duties of law enforcement and the nature of their responsibilities in order to raise citizen’s awareness and understanding of law enforcement’s obligation to protect and strengthen the vital partnership between the community and law enforcement. Go to Website.
