The Medina County Sheriff's Office holds the core values of Honesty, Integrity, Loyalty, and Professionalism in high regard. Law enforcement is no longer just a reactive process, but rather also a proactive customer service approach. Sheriff Grice believes in continuing the great partnerships and collaboration with all county safety services, government agencies, and community members to provide the best possible services to the citizens of Medina County.

The Medina County Sheriff’s Office has implemented an online scheduling system for citizens to schedule appointments to obtain a New or Renewal CCW Permit.
Appointments will no longer be scheduled over the phone. Please view the information for obtaining a CCW Permit by scolling over the General Information link to the left before scheduling your appointment. Below is a link to the new scheduling system.

Please be advised that the online scheduler is working, but is already booked out four months. Please keep trying.

Scammers have exploited pandemic unemployment insurance programs by filing for benefits using stolen names and Social Security numbers. Tens of thousands of Ohioans are believed to have been impacted.

If you received a 1099G tax form but never received unemployment benefits, received a state benefit card in the mail you weren't expecting, your employer got a letter from the Ohio Department of Job & Family Services (ODJFS) wrongly claiming you filed for unemployment, or you received an unemployment insurance fraud notification letter from ODJFS, please click on the link below to report you've been a victim of unemployment fraud.


It is not necessary to make an additional report with the Medina County Sheriff's Office; however, additional questions can be answered by calling the Medina County Sheriff's Office Communication Center at 330-725-6631.


Over the past several days we have received reports regarding citizens being contacted by "Lieutenant Linscott" from the Medina County Sheriff's Office. The caller advises the citizen they owe money and to make their payment using gift cards.

At no time will anyone from the Medina County Sheriff's Office ask you to pay using gift cards. If you receive a call like this and have a question, do not call the number that the caller gives you. Call the Sheriff's Office at 330-725-0028.

The Medina County Sheriff's Office in conjunction with the Medina County Drug Abuse Commission and the Medina County Drug Task Force is pleased to announce the implementation of a full time prescription drug turn in program. Located in the lobby of the Sheriff's Office, a secure collection box has been placed to accept all unwanted and/or expired medications.

To take advantage of this program, simply bring these items to the Sheriff's Office. A staff member will direct you to the collection box. Please note that the staff will not handle your medication for turn in. Prior to disposal, remove or black out
the information on the prescription label. Ensure that all bottles or bags are securely closed. Place all items in a clear zip lock bag. Deposit into the collection box. DO NOT DEPOSIT ANY NEEDLES OR SHARPS. These items will not be collected.

This program has been funded by the Medina County Anti-Drug Levy.
