The Chagrin Falls Police Department continues to actively patrol the Village and Township and will be responsive for all calls-for-service.

In an attempt to keep our personnel healthy and to minimize potential exposure to COVID-19, we will be taking reports that are non-violent and not in-progress via telephone, arrangements will then be made for follow-up where necessary.

> The police department will continue to respond to calls regarding violent crimes, crimes in-progress, or any incident that poses a safety risk to the public.

Recently, there has been an uptick in stolen vehicle reports. Please remember to lock your cars and remove all valuables. In addition, please remember to lock your homes.  

If you see any suspicious activity, please report it to the police department as soon as possible.

Pre-Flight Notification: The Illuminating Company Spring Routine Patrols

Please be advised that in approximately one week on February 25th, 2020, Chesapeake Bay Helicopters will be mobilizing to the region and will be performing Routine patrols on all Illuminating Company transmission lines, 138kV-345kV. Patrols are anticipated to take two to three weeks to complete but as always, inclement weather or any non-routine/post-storm patrols could prolong completion. 

The helicopter to be used for these patrols is a black and silver, Hughes MD500 with tail registration number N774CB – photo attached.

A routine patrol is a general, overall look at the conductors, hardware, and structures of the transmission line(s). The helicopter will be flying at speeds of 25-30 knots (25-35mph) where the onboard observer will be looking for any outstanding conditions on the lines and also may be seen hovering to get a closer look at any conditions that may be found. 

It should be noted that the contractor has been authorized to patrol the transmission circuits in their entirety (i.e. “breaker-to-breaker”), so patrols on certain lines may therefore extend into the neighboring regions. The flight crew provides information on their daily location to both Transmission Lines Maintenance and the FCC, and the pilot will be in communication with any local airports when in their airspace.  Please advise local Safety Forces and other public entities or sensitive customers as needed. 

If you have any questions please contact Dave Conley at 440-781-7319 or
