General Information

The chief and the sergeant are K-9 handlers. The police department part-time staff consists of three patrolmen. The department is supported by approximately 18 auxiliary officers, most who donate their time with no compensation but are fully commissioned police officers. Some of these auxiliary officers are also part of our bicycle unit. 
The police department serves the village base resident population of approximately 1,400 year round residents. The summer tourism is known to increase the population by the thousands filling the 2.0 square miles of Geneva-on-the-Lake.

 Golf Cart Use

In 2012, members of the community expressed a desire to operate golf carts on village streets. As a result, we adopted legislation regulating their use. This legislation includes a golf cart inspection program. The inspections are completed by the Chief of Police or his designee at a cost of $100 (see example). Additionally,  the inspections are only offered to village residents, whether seasonal or year-round. For further information, please visit the golf cart ordinance link below or contact Village Hall at 440-466-8197 during normal business hours.
