Traffic Enforcement
Our police department has a highly visible road patrol that uses moving and stationary radar as well as laser speed detection.  Enforcement of traffic laws is a routine part of our patrols on our township, county and state roads.  Additionally, our department participates in area wide campaigns such as “Buckle Up America” and “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over”.  We encourage our citizens to contact us with other specific traffic concerns.

Contacting Us
Our office building is currently located at 8245 Farnsworth Road in Waterville (located at the western edge of Waterville in the brick professional building).  Call 911 with emergencies and other calls for service.  Our non-emergency number is 419-878-9991 and our fax is 419-878-9992.

Going out of town?
Concerned about your home while you’re away? We can help . . . The Waterville Township Police Department will be implementing a new crime prevention program to better serve its citizens. This initiative will serve to supplement the existing house watch program for those residents who do not possess alarm or camera systems. Our agency will be able to provide temporary burglar alarms and hidden cameras to citizens, effective June 15, 2015. These cameras and alarms will be loaned to residents, free of charge, and installed on a first come, first served basis. The police department only has a limited supply of these hidden cameras and burglar alarms to install, and they can only be utilized while homeowners are away for a moderate period of time. Citizens wishing to use one of these devices will need to contact the police department at (419) 878-9991 at least 72 hours prior to going out of town. Citizens will be required to sign a request and waiver form prior to installation.

Home Security
Each shift our patrol officers visually or physically check the security of township businesses.  Home owners can receive this same service while you are out of town.  Call our office to speak with an officer or visit the Home Security link.  There, you can print a form* and mail it to our office.
