Police Department

Additional Information

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the following explains the current operations of the Police Department:

Now, more than ever, we ask that officers and residents use extra caution and follow all guidelines recommended by this agency, Ohio Department of Health and the CDC (Center for Disease Control).  We ask for your understanding during this difficult time. These changes are made for the protection of our officers, their families and the general public.

 Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Police Department has modified the manner in which we respond and conduct our operations.  As always, service and a commitment to our residents will remain our primary concern. 

  • The Moreland Hills Police Department will be taking reports over the phone for non-emergencies and incidents not in progress. 
  • The Police Department lobby is closed to the public for non-emergency related business. If there is an emergency and no one is at the station, the phone in the vestibule will connect you to the dispatch center.  
  • If you need to speak with an officer, please contact the Dispatch Center at #440-247-7321.Dispatch will forward the message to the appropriate individual and they will return your call.

The changes made to Police Department response are intended to be temporary.

 Thank you,

Chief Kevin Wyant

Social Security Scam

The Cuyahoga County Department of Consumer Affairs is warning residents to hang up on Social Security scam calls.   In these scams, callers try to scare people into paying to keep their Social Security accounts from being frozen or seized.   Occasionally, scammers will even claim the person’s Social Security number has been linked to a crime scene involving drugs or bodies.  

Consumer Affairs wants you to know that real government agencies don't call people with threats to seize their accounts.   And legitimate agencies NEVER ask people to move their money to new accounts to avoid seizure.   

To protect yourself from scams, let unknown calls go to voicemail – and don’t call hang-up numbers back out of curiosity.   Delete all messages that threaten you with arrest or seizure of your accounts or property.   And if you accidentally pick up a threatening call, hang up immediately.  

To report a scam or to get help with a complaint against a business, contact Consumer Affairs at 216-443-SCAM or online at
