SHELBY POLICE REPORTS ONLINE

Thank you for visiting the Shelby Police Page for the City of Shelby, and for taking the time to allow me to introduce myself to you.  My goal and vision is community outreach, community involvement, and for our department to move more toward a community-oriented policing model.  I am a member of both the Ohio and International Associations of Chiefs of Police, and we are working to update our policies and procedures, as well as our training.  We have joined SOAR, the State of Ohio Accreditation Resource as we look toward seeking agency accreditation; we are always looking for better and more effective ways to serve our community as law enforcement professionals. 
This community is very important to all of us.  I live and work here, and my children attend Shelby City Schools.  The safety and security of our community, transparency and openness of our operations, embracing diversity and serving all equally, fairly and impartially are very important to me as I serve in my role as your Chief of Police. 
I invite all of our citizens to visit your police department, to ask questions, to stay involved in your community so that we can work together on a number of issues.  Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact me by email, stop by, or call the office.  
Chief Lance Combs

The safety and security of the community of Shelby remains the top priority for the Shelby Police Department, which adheres to the following values:

Commitment, Justice, Integrity, Sensitivity, Respect, Accountability, Excellence, Attention to Detail

Thanks to the residents of Shelby, the 20-person department is located in the brand new Shelby Justice Center, which opened in March 2014. The Shelby Police Department also mans the accompanying jail within the Shelby Justice Center.

In addition to Calls for Assistance and Crime Scene Investigation, the Shelby Police Department partners with other agencies for service. While maintaining mutual aide agreements with other departments, the Shelby PD has participated in the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force program organized by the United States Marshals Service and the Richland County ASORT (SWAT) for the Hostage Negotiations Team. Officers from Richland County Sheriff’s Office, Mansfield PD, Ontario PD and Shelby PD have attended specialized training to deal with subjects in a crisis situation.

Originally authorized by ordinance in 1923, the Shelby Police Department has a long history of keeping the peace and serving our community.
