We pulled these 5 facts from the newly minted State of Ohio Auditor's Report on Westlake. The Auditor gave the city's finances a clean bill of health. 

1. The Police Department continued its commitment to public safety and awareness responding to 33,606 calls in 2012. 

2. The department made 5,806 arrests in the same year (more than 10 a day!). 

3. Numerous policing programs were offered such as the Community Police Academy, the Police Teen Academy, and the Ride-Along Program providing residents first-hand training and experiences.

4. Student programs such as Safety Town and Drug Awareness Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) continued with much success and classes in firearm safety and Rape Aggression Defense were also held.

5. Other community programs included National Bike and Walk to School Days, “Operation Medicine Cabinet” (disposal of unused prescriptions and over-the-counter drugs), and a “Shop with a Cop” (activities for children in need at Christmas time).
