       Mansfield Division of Police
       Office of the Chief
                                Dear Resident:

                                Although the past year ended with the tragic shooting death of Officer Brian Evans, there
                                were many successes and unique challenges for the men and women of the Mansfield
                                Division of Police.

                                Our primary mission remains that of creating a safe community through partnerships. I
                                am pleased to report a 14% Reduction in Part I Crime in 2007 when compared to 2006
                                and a decrease of 23% when compared to 2002. Additionally, working with a team of
                                dedicated personnel and labor leaders, we were able to reduce costs and purchase new

    Chief of Police
                              As we continue to enhance operational efficiency and fiscal accountability, the past eight-
    een months was marked with progress and accomplishments. The Division is now Nationally Accredited by the
    Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies and our Forensic Crime Laboratory has also been
    awarded National Accreditation by the American Society of Crime Laboratory Accreditation Board. Following recog-
    nition by the International Association of Chief’s of Police in Boston as one of the top community policing agencies
    in the country, three of our officers received 2007 State of Ohio Honors. Toward our goal of preparing our leaders
    for future challenges, 3 officers graduated from the Police     Executive Leadership College. Our Safety Town Pro-
    gram Celebrated 70 years in 2007 which was marked with a luncheon attended by past graduates and our own U.S.
    Senator Sherrod Brown as the featured speaker. Safety Town began in Mansfield and is now replicated all over the
    world.

    However, if we are to sustain success, our residents must continue to be partners, not bystanders in our quest to
    make Mansfield a great place to live and work. Toward our goal of continuing to open communications with our
    residents, Officers hosted 161 “Citizen Ride-A-Longs”, appeared at 232 public events and continued their work with
    2,842 registered residents participating in 53 Neighborhood Associations. The Division added 5 new Associations
    during 2007 and 224 new members.

    Although past success, National and State awards will provide us the foundation to become a better organization,
    it is collaboration, within the Division and with those who we serve that will help us to continue to reduce crime and
    maintain safer neighborhoods.

    As we continue to build trust both inside and out of the department, I am most proud of the dedicated men and
    women of the Division. It is only with their support and enthusiasm can we pledge to work with the good people of
    Mansfield to make our community a great place to live and work.

    Respectfully Submitted;

    Chief Phil Messer

     friend. Right now Brian was the fifteen year veteran who had died during the performance of his duties. Duties that kept him on

     never been a day go by he hadn’t thought about the safety of others.


     Drawn from their thoughts by the twenty-one gun salute, the team was intensely aware that they would have rather been anywhere but
     here…for that reason. Then, doing what they always do under difficult circumstances, they put aside their life for another…a
     brother. They had come this day to pay tribute and honor to a fallen comrade; nothing would deter them.

HUNDREDS SALUTE FALLEN HERO
Officer Brian Evans laid to rest with full honors after tragic shootings
MANSFIELD-With her husband’s police jacket draped over her                 shoulders,
Trina Evans tearfully recounted their life together.
She was one of about a dozen speakers at Brian Evan’s funeral       Saturday morn-
ing at Mansfield Senior High School. The city police officer was killed in the line of
duty early Wednesday in a shooting incident outside his brother’s Epworth resi-
dence.
Evans was a member of SWAT. Two bouquets of flowers adorned the unit’s truck,
parking in front of the school. Mourners signing the guest book passed two bas-
kets of Charms Blow Pops, Brian’s favorite candy.
An American flag draped Brian’s casket, a picture of him with his wife and daughter in the background.
The basketball scoreboard showed the number 182, Brian’s badge number, as people watched the pro-
jected images of his life in and out of uniform. The mournful sound of bagpipes filled the gym as the ser-
vice began.

UNEXPLAINED SHOOTING CLAIM 2 LIVES
Suspect in custody; brother, a Mansfield police officer, and neighbor killed, 2
more relatives wounded
Mansfield police officer Brian Evans died trying to help his brother, the suspect in a dou-
ble homicide.
Evans, 37, was shot and killed early Wednesday outside his brother’s residence at 3085
Robinson Road in Weller Township, northeast of Mansfield. Larry Evans is accused of
killing his brother and 44-year-old Robert Houseman, of 3083 Robinson Road; and injur-
ing Brian’s wife, Trina Evans, 37, and Brian’s sister, Kimberly Evans, 42.
The Evans family went to a movie earlier in the evening with two friends. Larry Evans,
39, left early, Richland County Sheriff Steve Sheldon said.
“He (Brian) was concerned about him,” Sheldon said.
“Brian was a highly decorated officer,” Mansfield Police Chief Philip Messer said. “He
loved his job, and he served diligently. He enjoyed working through problems with
people.”
