Geauga Lake police bill passes house, expected to clear senate

Posted | Contributed by Jeff

Geauga Lake, the amusement park that straddles Geauga and Portage counties, would be able to hire its own police force under a bill that passed the Ohio House of Representatives on Tuesday. Representatives approved 91-2 and forwarded to the Ohio Senate the measure sponsored by state Rep. Matthew Dolan, R-Novelty, that would permit amusement park police officers, at the park's expense, to attend the same training schools as other police officers and have full police powers.
