Mill Creek MetroParks police headquarters relocation announced

The Mill Creek MetroParks Police headquarters has relocated from its Glenwood Avenue location to a new spot in Canfield.

In a statement from Mill Creek MetroParks Community Engagement Director Jaime Yohman, the police headquarters has made the move to 7574 Columbiana-Canfield Road. The reason for the move is that it allows for a more centralized location, the release states.

“This move also greatly improves the office working conditions and facilities for the men and women of the MetroParks Police Department,” the release continues.

The building at 810 Glenwood Avenue which previously functioned as the office space for the police department is set to be demolished. The historical stone structure at 816 Glenwood Avenue will remain and continue to operate as a police outpost.

The release says park visitors will not be impacted or see any change in service as a result of the move.
