The TCSO and it's crime investigation unit is the most professionally advanced trained policing agency in the area.

All policing agencies work together for assists and help as needed, including the TCSO, Ohio State Patrol, and the Village of Newton Falls.
Newton Township is part of the NF Joint Fire District, and contributes it's portion of the cost to keep the NFJFD well equipped with two fire stations, an EMT response team with in house on duty facilities, and the latest in fire protection equipment. This system is a joint venture between the Village of Newton Falls and Newton Township, enabling the residents of Newton Township to enjoy a very high level of fire protection and EMT emergencies.
