As a resident of Reynoldsburg, OH, I will never vote to pass any type of levy or bond that gives the police dept. more funds, because they can't do their job now. This weekend durning the blizzard, my family and I were out of town. When we got home we had to dig out our road from where the plows pushed more than 3ft of snow, blocking our driveway. This morning I had two notes on my warnings of possible citations from the police department, because one of my cars was blocking the sidewalk, and my other car hadn't been moved in 48 hrs. It is ridiculous to get that kind of warning, when no other car in my neighborhood that hadn't been moved didn't recieve warnings. After all it was the city that piled the snow extra high around my car blocking it in. This just adds onto what happened this past summer. My car was broken into, and some credit cards were taken. The responding officer didn't bother to finger print. My wife and I found where they used our cards, and contacted those businesses. We were able to get the pictures of the subjects, and one of the car they were driving. We tried multiple times to contact the officer that came to our house, but they never returned our call. I guess it wasn't a priority for them. When they step up and start to do a better job, then I will be more willing to be more supportive of them.

I plan on moving from Reynoldsburg as soon as my son graduates in the next 4 years....REynoldsburg does alot of racial profiling..my ex husband who was a former cop, told me that in the 90s, it was very prevelant...I have had issues with them, and people complains about Columbus Police...who have often been very polite...and when one thought my car broke down, he stopped to see if I needed assistance!....The cops are shakey out here...they like to shake down alot, so its back to Columbus I go...at least with the criminals I know where I stand....its bad you cant trust the supposedly GOOD GUYS

I have seen Reynoldsburg cops at local bars ,drunk as heck and yet driving.But yet they will hide behind buildings to intrap people leaving local clubs.What a bunch of loser dirt balls they are,with crime growing in the area you think they would be out being real police instead of jerks.

If the African American population in REY were to suddenly start obeying every single law then the so called profiling would stop. I don't see that happening.

It is pretty sad when our officers don't have anything better to do than to set in a residential area with very low traffic issuing tickets for a rolling stop.$115 for a rolling stop. We know the Chief has put them under quota pressure but is this really necessary? If we are hard up for money, you may want to place an officer at the corner of Roundelay Rd. and Butterfly - those people never stop and the city could make lots of money on rolling stops.

All you have to do is obey the law and you wont get a $ 115.00 ticket. The person who received a ticket for a rolling stop is the same person who will call the police department and complaint that somebody ran a stop sign in there neighborhood. A quota is against the law so before you judge somebody else know exactly what you are talking about.

I am sick of hearing negativity about police offcers. The only people who complain are usually the ones breaking laws. Some have valid complaints but, most are just mad they got caught.

I requested a wellness check by the reynoldsburg police for my father as i live out of state. They acted like they didn't want to. He is a raging alcholic in a bitter divorce and driving drunk all over town. They need to protect the innocent people that he could harm as well as him. I shouldn't have to remind the police why they have their jobs! I lived in Reynoldsburg all my life until 2006 when I moved to Illinois. They just keep getting worse all the time. To "as if", it's not just law breakers getting made at the RPD, it's the people asking them to be fair and do their damn jobs!

Reynoldsburg cops are the only police I have ever had problems with. I'm sure there are good ones, but there are plenty of racial profiling ones, too. The resource officer at the high school is particularly good at singling out students she doesn't care for and harassing them. If you're black, drive carefully in Reynodsburg. If you're young, black and male, you better just stay home. Sincerely, not a black person.

People love to play the race card anytime they are stopped. It is never because they have broke the law, it's always because "they are black". That is ridiculous. The police have digital cameras in their cars that record continuously. When they activate their lights, the cameras go back to the previous 30 seconds and begin recording. This is not always going to catch your violation, but the majority of the time it will. If you think you were "wronged", take it to court. If you know you broke the law, stop bitching at the officer and pay the fine. They are doing their job.

I live in a very nice community in Reynoldsburg. A few years ago I had some Christmas decorations stolen from my front porch. Ok, not that big of a deal. The next year I had more stolen. My 4-year old was upset so I decided to file a police report. I knew it wouldn't help but I brought her with me so she could see the "wheels of justice". Right. I was basically laughed at by the girl at the front desk which was nice, then I waited for over 30 minutes for an officer to speak with me. Nothing. Nobody ever came and the idiot at the front desk paced back and forth on her cell phone ignoring me so I just left. I obey the law and feel like I got slapped by the Reynoldsburg staff. I understand they put their lives at risk, but they should care about all problems big and small. I haven't seen them do any drive by's in my area (they are supposed to do this, I'm told, to build good will with children and parents but I haven't seen one in 10 years). I work up north in sales and when people hear Reynoldsburg they automatically think ghetto. I have a relative that lives in Bexley and that is surrounded by true ghetto on 3 sides yet it's never touched. Is it the difference in police that makes it?

rolling stop? i believe that is called an oxymoron? if you stop at stop signs, you will not get a ticket.

I can't say it is much better on the West side. Good luck however.

Never had a problem with the police.
I stop at stop signs and red lights, drive the speed limit, do not drive aggressively, use my turn signal, don't steal from people and generally obey all the laws I can.

I miss the SNAT from the early 90s, say what you want about the unofficial program but it was effective.

The term rolling stop is an oxymoron. It doesn't exist. Either you stop or you don't. The term really means "I didn't stop because I am a piece of trash that doesn't obey the law and like to complain and not take responsibility for my actions"

Thank you, now I know I'm not crazy. Frankly, I could never decide if she hated my son or secretly liked him and harassing him was the only way to get his attention. She's a big blob of a broad with a big stupid mouth to match. And yes, there should be a sign up when you enter Reynoldsburg with a pic of a young black person inside of a red circle with a line through it. Signed, also not a black person.
