Join Our Team
The Avon Police Department is continually looking for qualified and motivated candidates to become members of our team. We offer competitive benefits, top-level training and career advancement opportunities.
The City of Avon is a western suburb, approximately 20 miles west, of Cleveland with a growing population of over 25,000 residents. Over the last several years, the city has expanded in both residential and commercial properties. This expansion has provided a large variety of commercial businesses, medical facilities, restaurants and retail businesses, making the City of Avon a desired destination to live and visit. This expansion, along with an exceptional school district and a community-focused mentality, makes the City of Avon one of the most desirable places to live in northeast Ohio.
The Avon Police Department is dedicated to maintaining a sense of security by creating community partnerships, and actively working to prevent crime and enhancing the quality of life for our community. We view ourselves as part of the community and not separate from the community.
We expect and encourage our officers to be engaged with our residents and business partners and to work together to solve problems, prevent crimes and continue to improve the lives of the those that we serve. We hold ourselves to a higher standard and encourage growth and training.
Ultimately, every officer is and should be a leader in our department bringing forward new ideas and methods.
What to Expect

Some of their job duties include answering phones, including 911 emergency calls, entering information into computer systems, dispatch calls for service and communicate with patrol officers via radio, process paperwork for courts and assist residents that come into the Police Department for assistance.
