City of Toledo, Department of Police Operations
Chief George Kral
It is my pleasure to present to you the Toledo Police Department’s 2018 Annual Report.This year’s report is focused on how we, as a department, work with the community to make Toledo the best place to live, play, worship, and raise a family.
I have said it often; if our neighborhoods and their police department are not truly engaged, Toledo cannot realize tangible improvements. This report will show the many ways we are reaching out to and including the diverse neighborhoods and communities in Toledo in our events and projects.
Additionally, you will see the more mainstream information found in most annual reports, such as awards earned, retirements, promotions, and statistical data sets collected throughout 2018. It is our goal to provide you with an all-encompassing document which will answer questions as well as showcase the great work being done day-in-and day-out.
January 5, 2015, was a day that changed my life. This was the day former Mayor D. Michael Collins promoted me to Chief of Police. Only 39 other individuals have had the honor of this title. Every day I come to work with one thing in mind: to make TPD better than it was the day before.
The citizens of this city are blessed to have the most dedicated peace officers in this country. There are more than 18,000 law enforcement agencies in this nation. I am proud to say the Toledo Police Department leads the pack!
I hope you enjoy this report.
