We pride ourselves in partnering with other local law enforcement agencies: Powell Chief Hrytzik & Sheriff Balzer.

K9 Kahless is happy to do his part to help get deadly drugs out of our community! 

Meet some of the staff and student volunteers for this year’s Safety Town (even therapy K9 Otto plays a part!).

Middle and high school students provide a valuable service assisting our School Resource Officers during Safety Town 2023.

Members of our multi-agency CART (child abduction response team) show off the underwater drone, another tool used to help us locate missing persons and collect evidence.

Corrections Officers must be on their toes, with their head on a swivel, as they protect and care for 160+ inmates 24/7.

Part of our training regimen includes active shooter scenarios where deputies are thrown into unknown situations to prepare for real-world crises.

Our Dispatch Supervisor was happy to provide an inside look of the Dispatch Center to the public information/communications team from Olentangy Local Schools. 

Raising awareness for domestic violence prevention & resources!
