Toledo Police Department News

After pondering and searching for the right words while patrolling the quiet streets of our wonderful city tonight, I am at a loss of the right words to express thoughts or emotions about the death of Chicago Police Commander Paul Bauer. Cmndr. Bauer was shot and killed yesterday (February 13th). He leaves behind a wife and a 13 year old daughter. The death of Cmndr Bauer marks the 17th law enforcement officer killed in 2018. 12 of which have been killed by gunfire. We are only 7 weeks into 2018. If these numbers are alarming to you, they should be. We, the Officers of the Toledo Police Department are blessed to have the feeling of support and backing of our community, governing body and families. However the dark truth of the matter is that there are people out there that intend others harm and the presence of a uniform will not deter them. A city of our size is not immune from this kind of actions by others. Despite this, we will continue to suit up and strive to serve this community. Like the side of our patrol cars say we are "Ready to protect, Proud to Serve". Below (if it works) is a link to a police tribute video for an Officer that was killed last year. It has reworked the lyrics to the song "Hallelujah" and I felt it fitting. Some images in the video may be uncomfortable for some viewers. Viewer discretion advised.

The City of Toledo will once again be in a snow emergency effective today (2/8/18) until noon Saturday (2/10/18). We will begin snow route parking enforcement at 1pm today through the end of the snow emergency. This means vehicles parked on the snow route will be towed at this time. We know that normal business is conducted "uptown" throughout the day making enforcement difficult. Therefore vehicles unlawfully parked in the courthouse square will be towed at 1 am Friday. A map of the snow route can be found with this post.

We thank the Facebook community's help with the identification of the male suspect whose photo was posted regarding a theft. The Toledo Police Department looks forward to it's continued partnership with its fine citizens of Toledo and beyond.

The city of Toledo is under a snow emergency from noon today until noon Tuesday. Please take note and refrain from parking on snow routes.

HONORING THEIR SERVICE. REMEMBERING THEIR SACRIFICE November 2nd marks the 1 year anniversary of the heinous act that took the lives of Des Moines Police Sergeant Anthony Beminio and Urbandale Police Officer Justin Martin. Our hearts go out to their families, friends and the members of the Des Moines and Urbandale Police Departments. "Blessed are the Peacekeepers"

The Toledo Police Department wants to give the public a reminder not to leave vehicles unlocked or to leave keys in ignition or inside the vehicle. This includes in driveways. There are the two biggest deterrents from falling victim of vehicle burglary and theft. 3 vehicles have been stolen in Toledo in the last few months. 2 of which had keys in them. All the vehicles have been recovered, but either damaged, or with valuables missing. Leaving vehicles unlocked with valuables in open view is cause for alot of vehicle burglaries. If you see suspicious people in or around vehicles please report it through the 24 hour dispatch center at 641.484.3760 (option 1)

The Toledo Police Department would like to thank the community for all of their help in identifying the two subjects in the photograph published in the newspaper. The investigating officer will be taking the information and using it in their investigation.

Toledo Police Department is looking for your help to identify this female subject. If you know who this is or have any information please contact us. This female has a tattoo on her left wrist if that helps anyone.

The Toledo Police Department extends it's sympathies and prayers to those who were lost, injured and all affected in the horrific shooting in Las Vegas. One cannot fathom the mindset of the individual behind the trigger. It will be debated and obsessed over by his family, academics, the victims, law enforcement for years to come. No matter the motive, the incident was horrific and hundreds of lives are forever altered.

The Toledo Police Department would like to thank all the community members who came to our "coffee with a cop" event this morning. A special thanks to Ross Street Roasting Company, Kwik Star, and Toledo Casey's for their generous donations of coffee and donuts!


Just a reminder about "Coffee with a Cop" this coming Saturday from 8-11 am at the State Bank of Toledo Community Room on Broadway Street. Ross Street Roasting will be donating the coffee. NO speeches, NO agenda, just chance to sit and voice concerns, ask questions and meet the Officers that serve the community. As a side note; It is unfortunate that Chief Kendall will not be able to attend this as he was diagnosed this evening with Pneumonia. He's sidelined for at least a week, depending on how well the medications prescribed to him work. With that said though, Chief Kendall wishes to tell everybody hi who plans on attending this event. :)

The Toledo Police Department would like to take a moment to remind the community to be sure to take the time to lock their cars and homes. This is one simple task you can do to prevent falling victims to burglaries. We have had reports burglaries and suspicious people in and around homes. Please contact the Toledo Police Department through dispatch (641.484.3760 Opt 1) if you see anything suspicious or concerning. It was brought to our attention that people may have been seeing suspicious people on their property at night and were not reporting it to law enforcement. Calling in a timely fashion is best. We want to work in partnership with the community to prevent crimes such as burglaries. Things you can do to minimize the chances of falling victim is locking doors and windows, keeping outside or motion lights on, closing curtains, etc. Thank you for your due diligence.

In regards to the drug take-back day on Saturday the 16th; We initially informed everybody that we wouldn't take sharps(needles). That has now changed thanks to some help from Premier Estates! We will now take sharps on Saturday as we have several containers to place them in! :)

Toledo Police Department is looking for this vehicle. It has been reported stolen, if you have any information please let us know, we would like to return it to its rightful owner.
