Cedar Point officials have little to say so far on a bill in the Ohio General Assembly that would treat police reports from private police departments as public records, making them available to everyone.
The amusement park has a private police force run by Chief John McMillion, who has more than 20 years of law enforcement experience, has a master’s degree in political science from Bowling Green State University and has certificates from the Ohio Chiefs of Police Executive Leadership College and the FBI National Academy.
He runs a staff of full-time and part-time certified police officers. Cedar Point doesn’t release the size of the force “for safety reasons.” As for the bill, House Bill 429, Cedar Point spokesman Bryan Edwards said, “The legislation was recently introduced and we are in the process of reviewing it. We will continue to follow the bill as it works its way through the legislative process.”
