We are pleased to announce that on September 13, 2011, the Cuyahoga County Department of Public Safety and Justice Services was established. The Department of Public Safety and Justice Services houses all of the division that previously were found under the former Cuyahoga County Department of Justice Affairs.

On this website you will find information about the department including a reorganization of offices, divisions and sections. In addition, you will find links to emergency preparedness information, trainings, citizen volunteers, current publications, grant announcements, communications center updates, general information about our department, and other valuable resources.

As the Director of the Cuyahoga County Department of Public Safety and Justice Services, I am committed to making sure the safety and security of Cuyahoga County residents is my first priority. I will continue to work collaboratively with the stakeholders in your community, including Safety Directors, Police Chiefs, Fire Chiefs, and 911 staff, to ensure a coordinated public safety effort throughout Cuyahoga County. We are proud to serve as your public safety representatives and look forward to our partnership with you as we make Cuyahoga County a safer and more secure place to live, work, visit, and grow.
