Established in 1853, the Lorain Police Department is comprised of 113 Police Officers and 34 civilian employees. Our department patrols the City of Lorain, protecting over 24 square miles and nearly 64,000 residents.

We’re constantly working on ways to make this site more useful by providing as much information to our residents as quick and in as many ways as possible.

Please take a moment to read a message from our chief, Chief Cel Rivera.

Help us bring justice to these victims of homicide and their families.  Please read about each case and provide any information you may have that will help us arrest and prosecute those responsible for their deaths.
