LETTER FROM THE CHIEF Dear community, Earlier this week in a Press Brief I expressed our appreciation for your understanding of the fact we simply cannot release details from the case on Blazing Star or any other case that is actively under investigation. Doing so would hamper the efforts of the officers who work so hard to investigate these cases and jeopardize the ability of prosecutors who will ultimately be charged with presenting these cases in court. Through the hard work of your Police Department and the assistance of our Federal, State and Local partners we were able to make the timely arrest of Jeffrey William Scullin Jr for the brutal Murder of Melinda Pleskovic. In cooperation with the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office, I am pleased to share that the previous incident reports made by Jeffrey William Scullin Jr. at the residence on Blazing Star were fabricated and did NOT occur. It is my hope and prayer this information will bring solace to each of you who lives, works or visits the City of Strongsville. Be assured, your police department will continue to work hard behind the scene to keep our community safe. Sincerely, Mark Fender Chief of Police

Here is some sound advice from the Ohio Highway Patrol especially with all the deer running around at this time of year.

Just a reminder when you change your clocks, change your smoke alarm batteries as well. Time change is November 5th.

If you let your teenager's friends drink in your house, you are breaking the law. The maximum sentence that you can receive for this is 6 months in jail and/or a $1,000 fine. More information can be found in the photos below.

This past Saturday was the DEA drug take back day. We collected 111 pounds of unwanted medications. If you missed the drug take back day, we have recently installed a drug drop box in the lobby of our police department. This drop box is for pills only.

Kids will be out while it is dark on Halloween – making it harder for drivers to see them. The lack of visibility makes it important for drivers to slow down and watch for trick-or-treaters.

Children of parents who talk to their teens about drugs are 50% less likely to use drugs. Here is a great resource for parents and teachers about how to talk to children about drugs. http://starttalking.ohio.gov/

We are aware of, and sensitive to, a number of concerns in our community following the recent incident on Blazing Star Drive. We ask for everyone’s understanding, support and patience while this case is being actively and aggressively investigated. We cannot release much information on cases that are under investigation. We have to allow investigators an opportunity to do their work. Be assured that nothing is more important to us than the safety of the members of our community.

Just a reminder, we will be participating in the DEA Drug Take Back Day on 10/28 from 10 am until 2 pm, so if you have any unwanted prescription drugs you can dispose of them at this time. We will be in front of the police department on Westwood Drive.
