Kinsman Township Police is a part-time department with various shift patrols who are very active in the community. We work in conjunction with the Trumbull County Sheriff’s Office on investigations and patrol. We focus on high visibility and community contact, providing property checks as well as senior/disabled contacts during regular patrol hours. We take pride in two special programs--Shop With a Cop and Safety Forces Day, the latter in cooperation with Kinsman Volunteer Fire Department.

Shop with Cop
Collections and donations throughout the town as well as through generous residents in the community has made it possible for many local children to participate in a shopping spree at local cooperating businesses such as Cope Equipment, Ace Hardware, Kinsman IGA, and the Dollar General Store. Children are escorted by local officers and complete the spree with a dinner provided by local eateries.
