The Ravenna City Police Department’s Records Division maintains records of incidents occurring within the city limits of Ravenna, OH. These include Incident Reports, Arrest Reports, Crash Reports, case photos, etc.

Report Copies:

The Records Division strives to operate in compliance with all current Ohio Public Records Laws. They utilize Sundance System’s record management package to efficiently manage all of their records. Requests for copies of reports may be made in person, or by mail in request. They currently provide copies of reports at no charge, up to twenty-five (25) pages. For reports larger than 25 pages the fee is $0.05/page after page 25. They require this fee be paid prior to receiving the record. If you are sending a request by mail, you may call the Records Division first to inquire as to how many pages are contained in the report. Additionally, in accordance with Public Records Law, you may request to view a report on site at no charge. While most records are open for public viewing and/or copying, there are a few exceptions:

  • Certain information may be redacted from reports in accordance with current Public Records Law and Privacy Laws. A good example of this would be Social Security Numbers.
  • Cases which are currently under active prosecution may not be released by this department. Requests for copies of these reports may be deferred to the Prosecutor’s Office for disclosure under “discovery” proceedings in accordance with the Ohio Revised Code.
  • Cases under active investigation, containing sensitive information which if released may jeopardize the successful investigation of the case, or may cause an uncharged suspect to flee, may be withheld.

These are some general guidelines. Their goal is to release records for public scrutiny in the vast majority of requests. And while some instances may require the temporary with-holding of a record, or portions thereof, they are here to work with you to obtain the information you need.
