Division of Police

The Grandview Heights Division of Police patrols the City of Grandview Heights and also provides police services to the Village of Marble Cliff. The City of Grandview Heights and Village of Marble Cliff are located in central Ohio, just west of downtown Columbus.

Division services are commanded by Chief Ryan Starns who oversees five sergeants, twelve officers, two detectives and four full-time communication coordinators.  The Division is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Message from the Chief:

Welcome to the City of Grandview Heights Division of Police. The Division is comprised of 20 sworn officers who proactively and extensively train year-round to deliver the highest quality services to our community members.  

As Chief, I am committed to the Division engaging with our residents, visitors, and business community regularly. The relationships we build in the community are paramount to fulfilling our mission. You will see our officers routinely driving throughout the city, on foot patrol, bike patrol, in our schools, and at community events.  

The Grandview Heights Division of Police strives to maintain public trust and confidence through shared information, education, honesty, integrity, fairness, and ethical behavior. We will work to preserve the rights of each citizen as we protect and serve on a daily basis. 

I value community feedback. We have made it easy to submit either a compliment or a concern, or to report criminal activity with one click. You may also reach out at any time by calling (614) 488-7901 during business hours.
