The Oberlin Police Department is located in the City Municipal Building at 85 South Main Street (St. Rt. 58). The Department has uniformed patrol officers, bicycle officers, a detective bureau, canine unit, and drug unit. The Auxiliary Unit runs a Checkmate Program, which is designed to care for our senior citizens. Those citizens are checked at least weekly to ascertain their needs and concerns. The Auxiliary Unit also runs a home vacation watch program.

The Department offers a Citizen’s Police Academy in an effort to strengthen the partnership between the Oberlin Community and their Police Department. The academy is a free ten-week course designed to enhance and develop citizen awareness and understanding of the police officer’s role in the community.

The Oberlin Police Department also provides crime assessments for Oberlin residents. Please contact the Department to schedule a crime prevention review of your home or business with an Oberlin Police Officer.
