The Division mission statement


Law enforcement providing a safe and secure community through proactive partnerships, while maintaining integrity, dedication and respect.

Covid-19 notice


The Brunswick Division of Police will continue to respond to any emergency calls or crimes in progress. Until further notice, the following changes will be in place.

Anyone who calls the dispatch center to request EMS or a Police Officer will be asked a few screening questions regarding health status and recent travel history for household members. These questions will not affect our response or level of service provided, but will allow our team to take any precautions that may be needed.

Officers may respond to requests for service by phone if an Officer’s presence is not necessary. If required for a report, written statements may be emailed to the reporting officer or dropped off in our lobby. We are discouraging Officers from entering a private residence for non-emergency calls, so be prepared to come outside to meet with an Officer. Officers will try to keep a safe distance of the recommended 6 feet and will not be shaking hands.

All visitors to our lobby will also be asked the screening questions and we ask anyone who is exhibiting any signs or symptoms of illness to avoid coming to the station unless it is an emergency and you are unable to contact us by telephone. In addition, we have suspended all public relations events and station tours.


On behalf of the men and women of the Brunswick Division of Police, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our official website. As our mission states, we are “Law enforcement providing a safe and secure community through proactive partnerships, while maintaining integrity, dedication and respect.”

It is through our partnerships and community based policing philosophy that the City of Brunswick is consistently recognized as one of the safest places to live, work and raise a family in northeast Ohio. We are committed to providing the highest level of professional police service to our community and if we can be of service or you have comments or suggestions please feel free to contact us.
