Wadsworth Police Department News

The National Safety Council designates April as 'Distracted Driving Awareness Month.' On average, it takes about five seconds to send or read a text message on your cell phone. In that time span, a vehicle traveling 55 mph could travel the length of a football field. Distracted driving is not limited to texting -- this can also include eating, changing radio stations, checking social media, and making phone calls. Please remember to keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road! #JustDrive

April is Autism Awareness Month! The Wadsworth Police Department has established a registry for residents with autism spectrum disorder or other special needs. Occasionally, WPD officers encounter an individual who is unable to provide us with any or accurate information regarding their identity, home address, or contact information for family members. The purpose of this registry is to provide us with a database to check when we encounter such a person and to assist us in reuniting them with their family. To add someone to this registry, please visit: https://docs.google.com/a/wadsworthcity.org/forms/d/1cFoXFNa5XPe7DOD3rRxi5TIhkIUnYEhXWV3O0Geyom8/edit

The second week of April is recognized yearly as "National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week," bringing attention to the dispatchers who work daily to ensure emergency response is provided to the communities they serve. Wadsworth Police Department has eight full-time dispatchers on staff who answer up to hundreds of calls per day, and the department thanks each and every one of them for the crucial roles they play as a part of our public safety team. Thank you for your service!

*******UPDATE: OWNER LOCATED******* This pup is currently safe at the pound, found on West St. Please contact the Street Dept if you're the owner 330-335-2842

This female was involved in a theft at a local business and was dropped off in a tan Buick 4 door. If you have any information on who she is contact our police department 330-334-1511 and ask for Ptl. Kuduzovic #36 in reference to case number 21803170.

The vehicle in these photos is a suspect vehicle in multiple thefts from vehicles parked at the YMCA and Planet Fitness recently. In these thefts, vehicle windows were broken out and purses were stolen from inside the vehicle. The suspect vehicle is a mid-2000's Dodge Grand Caravan with a large rack on the roof. If you have any information about the owner or driver of this vehicle, please contact WPD at 330-334-1511. Again, we cannot stress enough the importance of not leaving valuables in your vehicle, particularly those in plain view, even if your vehicle is locked. These 'smash and grab' thefts are all too common, and valuables on a front seat make you an easy target.
