London Police Department News

For all those LIVE PD viewers - we’re not so sure 😏

Today, the London Police Department (Ygor), along with the Madison County Major Crimes Unit and Madison EMD, had the privilege of speaking with some of our local church leaders to discuss substance abuse and how it affects families within our community. One of the main discussion points included providing assistance to adults and youth who may have been affected by someone in their family facing addiction. The panel also addressed recognizing trends, signs and symptoms of what to look for in a family member or friend who may be using substances. As always, tips can remain anonymous by using LPDs MyPD app or the Sheriff’s website.

INFO ref driver license changes coming from Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles: In an effort to ensure greater security and identification protection for customers, and to comply with federal regulations, the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles is introducing a single, central point of production for state driver licenses and identification cards, effective July 2, 2018. Licenses and identification cards will no longer be produced while you wait at each of the more than 180 Deputy Registrar offices statewide. While customers will still go to a Deputy Registrar for license and card renewals or other transactions, they will receive their driver licenses and identification cards by mail rather than over the counter. Only a temporary proof of transaction will be issued at a Deputy Registrar location. See the BMV website for details at this link:

The following statement is from the London School District regarding rampant social media posts and calls to our office this evening. District Safety Statement Thursday, February 22nd, 2018 Earlier Thursday evening several students and parents from London Middle School reported to the London Police Department an alleged conversation overhead at the school, which included a threat of violence at LMS. Upon receiving the report, the police department with the assistance of the school administration investigated the situation and determined that the situation did not constitute a credible threat to our school. Both the district and the department are aware of the anxiousness and speculation circulating on social media. Both the London City Schools and the London Police Department will continue to implement additional safety measures at our schools to ensure a productive school day on Friday.

Gavin Haynes, 38, was involved in a family dispute in London where he eventually stole his father's vehicle. A few minutes later an officer engaged with him in a short pursuit out of London on SR 42 towards US 40. The pursuit was terminated due to the traffic conditions and the reckless driving of Haynes. He was later involved in crashes on IS 70 near Springfield. He was subsequently apprehended and faces multiple charges in Clark County and also here in Madison County.
