Law Enforcement Division

The most important resources within the Law Enforcement Division are the people. Our primary goal is to maintain a professional, highly trained and well-educated force of deputies to provide the community with the highest level of police service and protection. The Law Enforcement Division provides round the clock law enforcement and response to calls for the entire unincorporated area (357 square miles) of Lorain County.

This division consists of Deputies assigned to one of three shifts and handles the initial response to 911 calls and dispatched calls for service from the public. They deal with all types of calls and complete the initial report of criminal activity.

They are the most visible police presence in the community and it is their job to provide primary law enforcement services to the public 24 hours a day, each and every day of the year.

Deputies are trained to quickly respond, assess, and manage all kinds of situations. Deputies also handle a great number of routine public assistance calls and assist other agencies in times of public emergency such as fire, flood, or other disasters.
