On Saturday, Chief Gene H. Fixler of the Newton Falls Police Department announced that the entire fleet of patrol vehicles had been chemically sanitized, in response to it being one additional step by the Chief to help protect the men and women of the department from the catching virus.

The service was donated at no cost to the City by Bob Mancuso of Advanced Dealer Solutions of Strongsville Ohio. Mancuso stated “ADS is proud to support our First Responders with a vehicle sanitizer for the fleet of patrol vehicles. We need to focus on keeping the officers safe so they can continue to keep us safe in these trying times”.

Chief Fixler is also making arrangements for the fleet of city service trucks to also be treated.
Newton Falls Police has also been working closely on a daily basis with the Trumbull County Emergency Management Agency, the Sheriff’s Office, and other Police Departments throughout the County with exchange of information and resources.
