Chief Spaetzel

To the citizens of Bay Village,

Thank you for your years of support of the Bay Village Police Department during my years of service, and as Police Chief for nearly 7 years.

Bay Village is a strong, close knit community that has survived despite the many challenges, past and present, that all cities face.

I know Bay Village will continue to prosper and remain the "gem" of Cuyahoga County. 

Very truly yours,

Chief Mark Spaetzel, Retired


Chief Spaetzel retired after 35 years of dedicated service to the City of Bay Village on June 1, 2020.
