Chief D. Wright

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 18 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 David M. Wright, Retired


Chief Wright retired after 33 years of dedicated service to the City of Bay Village on June 23, 2013.

Mark Spaetzel was appointed Chief of the Bay Village Police Department following Dave Wright's retirement.
