City police reports go online
The Brunswick Division of Police has launched a web page which allows visitors to research its incident and accident reports. The page contains a search engine that enables a search by the report number (if known), by the report date, by the street name, or by the last name of persons involved.
It will take approximately one week for reports to show up in a search, and only the front page summary of the report will be available. Pending investigations will not be put online.
Though people may continue to obtain information from the Division of Police via written requests, Police staff hope that more people will be able to obtain the information they desire by using the online search system. The Police Reports page is available in the menu above. Click on General information > Police reports.
Turn in prescription drugs safely anytime at the Brunswick Police Station
The Brunswick Division of Police in conjunction with the Medway Drug Enforcement Agency is pleased to announce the implementation of a full time prescription drug turn in program. Located in the lobby of police headquarters, a secure collection box has been placed to accept all unwanted and/or expired medications.
To take advantage of this program, simply bring these items to police headquarters and deposit them in the collection box. Please note that BPD staff will not handle your medication for turn in. Prior to disposal, remove or black out the information on the prescription label. Ensure that all bottles or bags are securely closed and place all items in a clear zip lock bag. Do not deposit any needles or sharps as these items will not be collected.
This program has been funded by the Medina County Anti-Drug Levy.
