The City of Willoughby Police Department is notifying the citizens of the City of Willoughby that it has applied for funds from Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant through Ohio Criminal Justice Services.
Titled Downtown Hot Spot Policing, the monies (9,064. 56/25% cash match $3021.52) will fund officers working overtime in the evening and nighttime hours during the warm weather months from Thursday through Saturday to address calls for services/problems such as assault, intoxication, theft, vandalism, criminal damaging, disorderly conduct, disturbance, and littering. An increased presence of law enforcement officers, as well as an open dialogue with business owners, patrons, and residents will be used to reduce crime and dispel the perception of crime so that the area remains a vibrant, safe place for individuals to frequent and live.
