We will begin inspecting golf carts for the Village of Coldwater golf cart ordinance beginning Wednesday, August 26, 2020 beginning at 9 am. We ask that you call ahead to schedule an appointment and we will begin taking appointments beginning tomorrow for Wednesday.

Remember to bring all the paperwork you used to get it inspected for the BMV with you to the inspection. This inspection will be $20.

If you have never had your golf cart inspected before we ask that you stop at the Police Department and pickup an informational packet that will explain the requirements needed to have it inspected. This inspection will be $50.

Also note that the Village is requiring seatbelts to be installed. This is above and beyond what is required by the State of Ohio to get license plates. This is one of the reasons why the Village is requiring all golf carts driven on Village streets to be inspected by and receive a golf cart permit sticker from our department.

Thank You Phil. It has been working great.

This week Details by Phil gave back to the men and women who sacrifice so much for our community. We donated a free Ceramic Windshield Coating to the Coldwater Police Department, EMS, and Fire Department. The coating was applied to each one of their vehicles. 11 in total.

This coating will provide increased safety and visibility. By creating a hydrophobic surface, water will easily be repelled during rainy conditions. This will dramatically improve visibilty and less need for your wipers. With current conditions, we want to make their jobs even easier. Details by Phil wants to thank each any every one of them for their service!

If you have interest in a windshield coating for your vehicle, feel free to contact us for more info.

The Celina Police Department's Shop with a Cop event was held Saturday, December 14th at WalMart in Celina. We were able to help 21 kids have a better Christmas this year. They were able to pick out both items they needed as well as some things they wanted. It was a great success!

Officers and Deputies from Celina P.D., Mercer Co. Sheriff's Office, Coldwater P.D., St. Henry P.D. and Ft. Recovery P.D. were on hand to help. The officers and deputies enjoyed spending time with the kids and giving them a positive experience. The families also enjoyed the time they spent with officers.

We would like to thank WalMart for all the special assistance for the event. We would also like to thank donors. We cannot list them all, but, major contributions came from the American Legion Riders, Eagles, Midwest Ohio Realtors and CALL Pantry. Also, thanks to the citizens who approached and made cash donations during the event. This helped keep us in out budget.

Special thanks goes to CALL Pantry and Mr. and Mrs. Homer Burnett. Not only did CALL forward a cash donation for Shop with a Cop, they handle the logistics for finding the families most in need. Without them this project would be much more difficult.

The Grand Lake Law Enforcement Association (GLLEA) handles all the financial transactions for the program. They are a 401c3 charity which allows people to make a tax deductible contribution. Their help makes funding the program possible. Without them the program may not exist for us.

Anyone wishing to donate to the Shop with a Cop program can send those donations the GLLEA, P.O. Box 262, Celina, Ohio 45822. Be sure to note "Shop with a Cop" in the memo.

Thank you and Merry Christmas!


On April 30, 2019, at approximately 4:07 pm, the Police Department was dispatched to S Second St in reference to a 2 vehicle, non-injury accident. Once officers arrived, it was determined that the driver from one of the vehicles had fled westbound from the scene.

The area was then searched for the driver, while other officers were able to find witnesses that were able to positively identify the driver as Jacob Hart. While officers were enroute to the residence Mr. Hart was last known to be staying, an officer in an unmarked car witnessed a vehicle leave the back of the residence. The vehicle was then followed and stopped by marked cars at Shell on W. Main St in Coldwater.

Jacob Hart was arrested for drug paraphernalia, obstructing official business, leaving the scene of an accident and fictitious plates. He is being held at the Mercer County Jail on a $10,000 bond.

Also located inside the vehicle was passenger Stephanie Eshleman who had an active warrant through Auglaize County. As Ms. Eshleman was being arrested, several drug abuse instruments were located in her possession. She is being held also at the Mercer County Jail on a $10,025 bond.

The Coldwater Police Department has installed a prescription drug drop box in the hallway of the police department. The box is designed for year round disposal of outdated or unneeded pharmaceuticals.

Prescription drug abuse has been a significant problem across the country for many years. One source of these pharmaceuticals comes from residentโ€™s medicine cabinets. With the installation of the drop box, residents will have 365-day access to properly dispose of any outdated or unneeded pharmaceuticals. Prescription pills, vitamins, ointments, pet medications, patches and any over-the-counter medications will be accepted.

The Coldwater Police Department feels this is just one step toward reducing the amount of prescription drug abuse and hopes that citizens will take advantage of the drop box. Other locations of drop boxes can be obtained at
