Crime Prevention Information

Crime Alerts/Crime of the Month

The Grove City Division of Police believes the most effective way to combat crime is to involve the public. We provide crime alerts to inform the public of trends and offer tips on how to reduce their chances of being a victim. We are dependent upon our citizens to help identify crime trends and suspects. Please review the below crime alerts. If you have any information that will assist us in solving these crimes, we ask you to contact us at 614-277-1710. If you prefer to remain anonymous, you may use our Tip Line at 614-277-1808.

Crime Prevention

Stopping crime before it happens makes for a safer, more enjoyable community. The Grove City Division of Police is dedicated to making crime prevention a top priority. Many programs are available to help educate and deter unlawful activity. The pamphlets below explain some of our crime prevention programs in detail. If you would like more information on these or other prevention programs, e-mail the Crime Prevention Coordinator or contact them by phone at 614-277-1765.

Crime Mapping

In an effort to keep our citizens informed and to solicit information on unsolved crimes, the Grove City Division of Police displays information on criminal activity available through Crime Mapping.

Information on reported crimes over the past 180 days is available on the Crime Mapping web page. Once there, you may enter your address to find out about crime in your neighborhood or view the city as a whole. You may also filter for specific types of crime, such as thefts, burglary, robbery and assaults.

The categories of crimes are broad in definition. For example, incidents in the “assault” category include simple assaults, domestic violence and menacing offenses. If you would like information about a specific incident, complete a Public Records Request or call 614-277-1714.

If you have information about criminal or suspicious activity within the city, please call the Grove City Division of Police at 614-277-1710. You may also leave information on our Anonymous Tip Line at 614-277-1808. The tip line does not collect caller ID information.
