Chief of Police: Larry Dordea
Hartville is a jewel of a community with great potential. We have a low (1%) income tax and a great school district. We are close to everything important in Northeastern Ohio, and yet we are a quiet community of neighborhoods where kids can play safely and the everyday pace is rewardingly slow. We are famous for great food, great shopping and a very safe environment. Our crime rate is low due to the quality of people who live here and the quality of the police officers who work here.
I was appointed as Chief of Police on December 2, 2009, and I am proud to lead, train and mentor the very professional police officers of Hartville, Ohio. Our focus in 2010 will bring enhanced training and equipment which will result in improved crime detecting and crime solving abilities.
We are a community on the rise with crime on the decline, and my promise to the community and all of those who pass through or stop by is simply this:
"We will work hard to prevent crime and to bring those who break the law within our community to justice. We will be kind, courteous, and professional while we strive to live up to the highest standards of complete law enforcement service and protection of Hartville, Ohio."
My general office hours are Monday through Friday, from 7:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m., and can be reached at 330-877-2630 ext 305.
Please review these New Traffic Laws for Vehicle Headlights and Child Restraints.
