Police Cruisers


Chief Russell Baron has several years of full time service in multiple facets of law enforcement. His experience is diversified and training focuses primarily on criminal investigations and police department administration. He has served on fugitive recovery and street crimes task forces in both the Youngstown area and Columbus Area. Currently he is active with the Delaware County Child Abduction Response Team, and the Drug Free Delaware Coalition. Previously he oversaw patrol operations and served as our liaison for our community policing programs, coordinating events such as National Night Out.

Chief Baron believes that through community police partnerships we can continue to have the trust of our community and maintain our peaceful town. The police department is here to serve the community, and to properly do so we must maintain an open line of communication with our community members to understand what their needs are.
