Message from the Chief of Police

It is an honor and a privilege to serve the City of Brecksville and the Brecksville Police Department as it’s 8th Police Chief.  When I was hired as a patrolman 27 years ago, I felt lucky and fortunate to just have a job.  I soon realized that it wasn’t just a job, it was a career, a career that I enjoy and care about.

The police profession and the Brecksville Police Department have changed quite a bit over the last 27 years.  But one thing that has not changed is the dedication and pride of the men and women of this Department as they serve this Community.  Year in and year out, the City of Brecksville is ranked as one of the safest cities in the State of Ohio.  I firmly believe this is because of a cooperative effort that involves the hard work and professionalism of the men and women of this Department, the support and leadership of our elected officials and City Government and the support and active involvement of our residents and local businesses.  We are fortunate that we have residents who care about this community, who look out for their neighbors and are willing to get involved.  

Society however is changing and more and more threats to our safety and wellness are evolving everyday.  It is more imperative now then ever that we all continue to work together to keep the City of Brecksville amongst the safest cities in the state.  This Department will do all it can to continue to serve and protect this Community to the best of it’s abilities.  I ask that the residents of this community stay involved and continue to be an extension of your police department’s eyes and ears.  Please do not hesitate to contact myself or this Department with any concerns or questions that you might have.  

William P. Goodrich
Chief of Police
