Windham Police Department News

Join us on Thursday 02-22-18 at 6:00PM at the Windham High School. In light of last weeks tragic events in Florida, and the numerous other senseless acts of violence, This "round table" type discussion is open to members of the Windham community to discuss concerns with, and suggestions as to methods to keep our children safe. Hosted by Superintendent of Schools Greg Isler and Chief of Police Eric Breiding, discussion is designed to hear your thoughts and answer your questions. We are also hoping that members of the School Board, and the Elected Officials of the Windham community will be in attendance. To make this evening truly effective, we would also like to hear from some of our student body. The rules: 1. This is not a political debate. We need to search much deeper than red or blue political party affiliation. 2. Everyone's opinion is important. We will remain courteous and respectful of others, as this is designed to find solutions, even if just local, with the goal of preventing violence. See you on Thursday!

Don't forget, tomorrow from 1-5pm at the Windham Dollar General we will be hosting our 2017 Fill-A-Cruiser event. Please stop by and make your donation. Let's make sure everyone has a joyous holiday.

In just over 12 hours, our WINdham Bomber varsity football team will be entering into battle with Lisbon in the first round of the 2017 Ohio State High School Athletic Association playoffs. We would like to wish these student athletes the best of luck in tonight's contest, and throughout this tournament. Many of us have gotten a chance to watch these young adults display their athletic ability as they entertained us with their enormous talent. Fortunately, we have also had the opportunity to get to know several of them off the field as well. On Friday nights, we watch as this group exhibits their talent, but more importantly, we have watched them display their character on a daily basis. As good of athletes as they are, they are truly amazing people. I personally don't think I have ever met a group of people more polite, respectful and always willing to contribute to their community and others. Please, as you see this group throughout the day, join us in saluting them. Give them a beep of your horn, a waive of your hand and a word of thanks for the athletes and people they are. Wish them luck as they battle tonight on their home field, and come out and support them.

Sandy Smith, our school crossing guard, is awesome!

Our thoughts and prayers are with our brothers and sisters in Girard.

On behalf of the entire Police Department, I would like to commend the students and staff of our Jr./Sr. High School. Earlier this week, you proved your dedication not only to safe learning, but maintaining a safe community. With the assistance of the Ohio State Highway Patrol and their canine partners, we conduct a random surprise drug sniff of the campus. This exercise was extremely successful, as once again our students, faculty and staff showed their true character. Throughout the exercise, not one suspicion was raised, not one canine alert occurred, and absolutely no contraband was detected. I would like to thank the faculty and staff, but mostly our students. You continue to positively represent yourselves, your families and our community. Clearly, "Bomber Pride" is more than just words. Chief Breiding

We have just been advised that beginning Sept. 18, and lasting probably until the end of September, N. Main St. will be closed at Park Dr. Please plan for this road closure and make alternate route plans.

All phone line repairs have been completed. The non-emergency line 330 326 2211 is back in service.

The repair to the phone lines has taken longer than expected. As a result of a cable outage, our non-emergency lines are down. For emergencies, 911 is still working. You can reach the police department at 330-352-3694. We will update when more info is available.

We are currently experiencing a temporary service interruption with our non emergency phone number. Crews are working to correct the problem as soon as possible. 911 phone lines are still working for emergency calls, and while repair work is being done, you can call 330-326-2212 for non-emergency calls. We will advise as soon as the problem is resolved.

Tomorrow night, 4th Annual Community Night Out! Parade starts at 5pm, ending at Community Center..see you there

Time to correct the social media rumors...... Early last evening, two individuals, who both appeared to be under the influence of drugs and or alcohol, committed a burglary at the United Methodist Church. Damage was done to the Church as a result of the commission of this crime, the amount of which has yet to be determined. Both indivuduals were apprehended inside the church and taken to the Portage County Jail. A male resident of Hewins Rd. and a female from Brosius Rd have both been charged with Burglary. Contrary to false narratives on social media, there is no reason to believe that these individuals were being chased by anyone, nor were they hiding from any real threats of harm. We would like to thank both the Garrettsville Police Department and the Portage County Sheriff's Office for their assistance during this incident.

Some positive news out of Uniontown this morning. Prayers to the Officer, his family, the Uniontown Police Department and Community. ***UPDATE*** Our Officer that was shot last night is out of surgery. His vitals are good but more procedures will be done. If you could keep our Officers in your prays. And Please say a pray for our Officer and his family. Would like to thank everyone for their support during this time. Chief Britt We routinely receive requests for one of our patches, however we rarely if ever respond by actually sending a patch. After this young mans story was brought to us by Ms. Amero from the High School, we felt honored to have him add one of our patches to his collection (along with a few other goodies). I realize he is all the way in Texas, but we will always do everything in our ability to help kids, regardless of where they live. We hope you enjoy your package Brandon! Thanks for letting us be a part of it.

A Month or so ago, we here at the Police Department assisted our friends at the Fire Department and published their training manual for them. You may remember the photo we posted (it contained a monkey and a firetruck). Now that's it's actually in use, I feel it best that only Chief Gano and/or Asst. Chief Stewart post it, it is after all theirs. Being the good sports they are, slow (hey, they're fireman) but still good sports, tonight they delivered a gift of thanks to us...
