Ask a Cop

Mike Doley spent 15 years "on the job" as a Sergeant in Willoughby Hills and in the Narcotics and Road Departments of the Geauga County Sheriff's Department.

From there he went to the East Cleveland Fire Department where he spent seven years.

Now that he is "retired" Mike works as a fire investigator for the private sector.

Mike Doley

Mike is also a Marine (there's no such thing as an ex-Marine).

He will be answering any questions you may have on basic police issues, primarily traffic and misdemeanors. As you will see, Mike has an irreverent style that is part of his no-nonsense personality.

From Mike: Thanks for the really interesting questions. I try to be as careful as I can about answering each question as truthfully as I can.

I will not give legal advice as the lawyers will get upset. I do not know the ordinances of each community and some have differing laws on some things. State law however applies to most questions. If you really need a complete and comprehensive answer, go to a library - the Ohio Revised Code is there along with local ordinances.
