The Tiffin Police Department has released their 2015 Annual Report, showing the strides the PD has made in overall crime reduction and working with other communities in Seneca County to provide the best possible safety services.
The report showed a cumulative 74% drop in Uniform Crime Reports crime from 2012-2015. The year 2015 also saw the lowest reports of rape, robbery, burglary and larceny since 2010. From 2014-2015 there was an overall drop in crime of 28.5%. There was also an 18.99% decrease in parking tickets issued in 2015 compared to 2014.
Another highlight of 2015 was working on including Fostoria Police Department in a multi-jurisdictional computer program. This step means that all law enforcement agencies throughout Seneca County will be able to view both reports and units on duty in the county, have a standardized report format, search names throughout the system from any of the other agencies, property searches, vehicle searches, etc. This puts Seneca County ahead of all 88 Ohio counties in multi-jurisdiction law enforcement.
Chief of Police Fredrick Stevens looks forward to continuing these positive trends: “Rest assured that the men and women of the Tiffin Police Department are going to continue to strive to provide the best possible level of professional law enforcement services to our community and it is through the assistance of the Mayor, City Administrator, City Council and its Citizens that make this possible.”
