YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – In another step to prevent the possible spread of COVID-19, both the Youngstown police and fire Departments are closing their areas to the public.

Police are now closing off the second-floor lobby area where residents would usually make reports.

Similarly, all of the city’s fire stations, including the number one station downtown, are no longer open to the public

Those in need of making or requesting police reports are asked to call 330-742-8926. Requested items can then be sent either by email or direct mail.
