It is our intention to send a strong message to our Community that crime will not be tolerated in either the least offensive or most heinous forms & we are committed to improving upon core values where citizens can raise a family in a safe and respectable environment.

Mission Statement

The Ashtabula City Police Department is initiating the implementation of “Broken Windows,” a newly adopted management philosophy which is comprised of the uniform and customary application of codified ordinances and State laws as they apply to the health and well being of the citizens of Ashtabula.

In conjunction with the City Manager, the Departments of Public Works, Sanitation, Planning & Community Development, Ward Representatives and the Ashtabula Metropolitan Housing Authority, the aspirations are to improve the overall quality of life by drastically reducing crime while at the same time increasing the appearance of this City.

 

It is our intention to send a strong message to our Community that crime will not be tolerated in either the least offensive or most heinous forms and we are committed to improving upon core values where citizens can raise a family in a safe and respectable environment.

 

Our goals, achievable under this management philosophy, are:

  • Abating vegetation, removing waste and improving street lighting thereby reducing opportunities to commit crimes.

  • Reduction of public nuisance and drug related crimes via strict enforcement by specially trained law enforcement personnel.

  • Assertive enforcement of ‘junk’ vehicles and illegal dumping of waste.

  • Beautifying the City’s public venues through continuous improvements.

  • Increase tourism to our ports, fisheries, business merchants and fine dining establishments.

  • Establishing recreation facilities for youths which do not require paid membership.

  • Sustained enforcement by the Ashtabula City Police Department and other agencies capable of providing a save and secure environment.
