The Department is located in the basement of the Put-In-Bay Town Hall Building.  This building on Catawba Avenue towers over most of the structures on the island.  The most obvious exception being Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial.  The force is close to the busy downtown Village of Put-In-Bay district.  This places the officers right where they are most needed.  Furthermore, they can access most of the heavily trafficked areas in short time.

There is a Dispatch Department which is tasked with the intake of calls.  They accurately and efficiently assist callers.  Sending the appropriate help with speed is essential for overall success. Together with the officers, they form a team that does an outstanding job keeping Put-In-Bay a safe place to visit.  The popularity as a vacation destination makes the island an interesting place to be a police officer.  Many new officers land their first job with the Put-In-Bay Police Department.  Knowledge gained on island helps them with later work as a full time officer elsewhere.  There are 4 full time officers year round.  Otherwise, the high season sees over 40 Put in Bay Police Officers.
