The Village of Granville was founded in 1805 by pioneers from Massachusetts and Connecticut. The crest on the police department patch and police cruisers reflects this migration.
In 1962, the Village Charter was adopted creating a Police Department. The department provides complete police services (24 hours a day, 7 days a week) to the entire Village. The department is comprised of 10 full-time officers, 4 part-time officers, 3 reserve officers, 2 full-time dispatchers, and 5 part-time dispatchers.
The Granville Police Department provides a number of community related programs to enhance the services that it provides to the community. Some of those enhanced services include:
- Bike patrols
- Safety talks
- Department tours
- Vehicle lock outs
- Safety city
- Special duty officers
- Vacation house checks
- Business checks
