The Cheviot Police Department is starting a program to help keep residents better informed of what's
happening in their neighborhood. Cheviot Police Chief Joseph Lally said the
program is called Crime Alert, and it's an e-mail based notification system.
When particular incidents are occurring in a neighborhood a Crime Alert e-mail will be sent out to those who subscribe informing the residents of what is happening, particularly if the police department is looking for a certain person or vehicle, and how the residents can protect themselves. The system will also accept incoming e-mails to the police department, allowing residents to send in information about incidents they feel need police attention or tips to help the police on cases they may be investigating.
Residents interested in receiving Crime Alert e-mails should subscribe here and choose "Subscribe to Crime Alert" as the subject. Residents are asked to include their home address in the e-mail to ensure they receive the proper notifications for their neighborhood.
A Crime Alert e-mail will only be sent out when specific events that the
public should be aware of are occurring. There may be extended breaks between
alerts if there are no incidents to report. All subscribers' e-mail addresses
will be kept confidential and used only for the Crime Alert program.
Anyone who has questions can send an e-mail to the police department, or call 661-2917 to speak with Chief Lally.
A crime deterrent program was done in March by the Cincinnati Police Department and is now being endorsed by the Cheviot Police Department. It's called Theft From Autos. Download the informational brochure here (requires Adobe Reader) and see how you can avoid becoming a victim of a crime.
The Cheviot Police Department now has a K-9 unit within the department.
Thanks to donations and matching dollars from the National Association
of Chiefs of Police, the department is able to fund the program. Officer
Jeff Patton is pictured above accepting one such donation from the Matt
Haverkamp Foundation. As of 2/25/09, $35,000.00 has been raised.
Meet Charlie, pictured here with Officer Jeff Patton. Charlie has been trained by Police Dog Services in Germantown, Ohio and was certified on

to fund the K-9 program.
