Have a trusted friend pick up your door step packages.

Hello fellow residents!!!

We hope you are staying warm and safe.

Just to pass on .... a resident got a call from their "grandson" claiming to be in trouble. The resident said that the caller sounded like the grandson but they were calling from a different phone number. The caller claimed that "they" took his phone. When the caller became suspicious and started asking questions the caller hung up.

Please do not fall for this scam. In todays world all of your information including family members are on the internet. The callers in this scam will ask for you to send money to a certain place. If this happens to you call your family at the numbers that you know to make sure your family is well.


Thanks, Chief Mike Currington

Hello residents of Fowler!

Once again there have been a few construction trucks, dump trucks and trailers stolen in the surrounding counties.

Prevention is the best way to reduce you from being a victim of a crime.


330-675-2730 ( Trumbull County Dispatch) to get a Fowler Officer or Trumbull County Deputy to your house.


330-637-7111 for Fowler Police Business calls only.


911 for Emergencies only.


Thanks, Chief Mike Currington

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the Police Department!!

Just some more holiday reminders....keep all doors locked to houses, garages and other buildings. Lock car doors and don't keep anything of value in the cars.

Try to get packages off your porches as soon as possible even if you have to enlist the help of family or a trusted Neighbor.

Don't fall for phone scams... don't give out personal information over the phone or computers. If you have not played a sweepstake or lottery there is no way you can win the sweepstakes or lottery. There is no free money.

Get a designated driver when going out and be safe when using the road.

Keep an eye on your friends and neighbors and please don't hesitate to call.

Thanks, Fowler township police

Hello again from your Police chief!

I'm just sending out another friendly reminder about keeping your property safe.

Reminder to lock all vehicles if you keep them outside and do not keep anything of value in the cars. Keep all doors locked to houses and outbuildings.

If you can, put a hidden kill switch on any farming equipment, tractors or other equipment left outside, that would help.

Please report any suspicious activity to the dispatching center at 330-675-2730. Always keep an eye on your neighbors!

Important information from your Fowler Police Chief.

I think there is some confusion about what number to call when requesting an officer.

In Trumbull County we have a dispatching center. It is not connected to the Sheriff’s Office. It is its own entity.

The number to call to get a Fowler officer or deputy Sheriff to your house for a call is 330-675-2730. That number goes to Trumbull County dispatch. If there is no Fowler Officer on duty they will dispatch a Deputy Sheriff.

Fowler Police has an office phone number for BUSINESS purposes only. That number is 330-637-7111. This is not a dispatching number.

As always, dial 911 for emergencies.

Also, be mindful there are several roads in Fowler Township. Maintenance responsibility is divided between Fowler Township, Trumbull County and The State of Ohio depending on which road it is. Please see the Road Department page for a list of roads and which entity is responsible for service and maintenance.

The following was posted to the Everything Cortland Facebook page. Stay on the lookout out for a Red Dodge Caravan License Plate # FCL 6343. There was a woman in the passenger seat with dark hair and a man with light hair driving and someone in the back trying to coax a child into the side door from his front yard. The area was on Ridge Road between 88 and 87. The incident happened May 16th around 7:00PM. 911 was called and the Sheriff took a report. Visit Everything Cortland Facebook page for the entire posting. Please be on the lookout for anything suspicious.

Be advised a Fowler resident got a scam phone call. The scammer id himself as a federal agent and asked the the victim for the local police departments phone number to take care of the issue. The resident gave him Fowler Police phone number. The scammer then called the resident back from the departments phone number (3 way call) and id himself as the police chief to continue the scam. The resident did not give out any information or money. The original call came from a phone number in the Carolinas. Be aware! Chief Currington
