HPD had two retirements today. The first to highlight is Jim Beeler. While Jim officially retired today, yesterday was his last day in uniform. He got to round out his career with a parade! Congratulations Brother Beeler!!

Hamilton police officer Jim Beeler’s last duty assignment was arguably his most public: leading the city’s 2019 annual July Fourth parade.

Brother Jenkins and Brother Hayes were honored along with other first responders in a ceremony today at the State of Ohio Division of EMS.

Today, Sergeant Jenkins and Officer Hayes received the Star of Life Award by the Ohio Division of EMS, along with Butler County Dispatcher Katie Nethers, and members of the Oxford Fire Department for an incident that occurred on April 4, 2018 at Schneider Electric. Employee Karen Sauerland collapsed that day and suffered cardiac arrest. Fellow employees responded immediately, activated their onsite emergency response team, and called 911 where Dispatcher Nethers answered the call. Sgt. Jenkins and Officer Hayes responded first and continued CPR. The Oxford Fire EMS crew arrived soon after and administered shocks from the AED. More advanced care was provided and Ms. Sauerland was transported to McCullough Hyde Memorial Hospital. She recovered and is doing well today due to all the pieces of the Emergency Medical System working together.

It was great to hear all the success stories from around the State at today’s ceremony. We wish all our fellow responders a happy #EMSWeek and thank them for what they do!

Brother Jenkins shares his story and memories from #POLICEWEEK
Every Police Officer should attend this ceremony at least once in their careers.

Our third shift supervisor, Sergeant Josh Jenkins, took vacation time and was able to get away this past week for a trip to Washington, D.C. during #PoliceWeek2019. This is a message from Sgt. Jenkins:

Over the last 5 days I was fortunate enough to attend National Police Week in Washington DC. I was able to meet countless officers from as far away as South Whales Australia, who even though we only spoke briefly, became more than friends. They became brothers and sisters immediately. The laughs came easy, but the stories shared were somber and a reminder of the dangers faced daily.

Nothing brings us together more than the Fallen Officer Memorial Wall. Here we gather to pay tribute to over 21,000 Officers who gave their lives in the line of duty. There are incredible stories of heroism. It was an honor to be present for several tributes, including honor guard ceremonies and experiencing chills when the bagpipers played in tune.

One thing I will take away from this week is how lucky OPD Officers are to work in this community. There was a lot of talk this week about “community support” in the areas we work. There was a common theme, most communities don’t have the relationship with their police like we do in Oxford. There have been a number of times when an officer was struggling to apprehend a suspect and a citizen stepped in to help. I have seen injured Oxford officers that were given medical attention by bystanders until professional medical care could arrive. This does not seem to be the norm in today’s society. For that, I want to say Thank You to the Oxford Community. Without your help, we could not provide the quality, professional police service you deserve.

If anyone ever has a chance to take a few days and visit DC during Police Week, please do. Whether you are law enforcement, have family that is, or just want an experience you can’t find anywhere else, it is worth the trip.

Our ride to Washington D.C.

Today is National Peace Officers Memorial Day. As you go throughout your day, please keep in mind those officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty.

For those of you who have contributed to the Police Unity Tour, all nine Chapters raised a total of $2,810,000.00. This money raised will go toward the upkeep and expansion of the Police Memorial Wall in Washington D.C.

Thank you for helping us remember them!

Today, May 15th, we honor those that have made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty to protect their communities. Peace Officers Memorial Day came into effect on October 1, 1962, when Congress asked President John F. Kennedy to designate May 15 to honor law enforcement officers and the week in which it falls is Police Week. More than 21,000 officers have made the ultimate sacrifice and today we honor them.
FOP Lodge 38 member agencies have lost 12 officers in the line of duty since 1916. #PoliceWeek2019 #thinblueline

We have made it to the end of the second day! We had one crazy day, between the hills aka mountains and the rain it was by far the toughest day! But as we entered each town the countless people clapping and cheering showing support is worth every hard mile.

Work day at the Lodge! Thankful for the good weather today as we clear honeysuckle and clean up at the Lodge.

Well tonight was our last “Thursday” ride before we head out next week. Since the weather has been less the cooperative with us lol we opted for a solid 80 mins on the trainers tonight.

We can not thank everyone enough for the amazing support, without all of you non of this could even be possible! We are very excited to be able to share this journey with all of you.

Congratulations to Meghan Robinson who took her Oath of Office last evening as a Fairfield Township Police Officer. Meghan graduated from Miami University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Criminal Justice and played basketball at Miami University-Middletown for four years. We look forward to her being part of the team and everything she will contribute to this great community.

Congratulations Chief!

Congratulations Chief!

We want to brag on our own today! For the last 14 months, Chief John Jones has been attending the Certified Law Enforcement Executive (CLEE) program. This is a challenging leadership training hosted by the Ohio Association of Chiefs of Police. The primary purpose of this training is to equip upper command level executives with increased professional competence, management, and leadership skills. Areas of study range from Ethics, Organizational Risk Management, Resource Allocation and Budgeting, to Human Resources and Strategic Planning, and more. It is an academically challenging program, all while the students maintain working in their command staff or executive level positions at their respective departments.

In addition to the challenges of attending CLEE while maintaining his responsibilities as Chief of Police, John Jones took it to the next level and earned the CLEE award for his exceptional academic performance, as well as his community involvement here in Oxford. The award is named for Chief Michael Kallai, himself a CLEE graduate and board member, who died in 2010.

Successfully finishing the program places the graduate into a higher tier as a law enforcement executive. Graduates may use the suffix “CLEE” after their name to indicate their accomplishment. You may very well be seeing that behind his name, and now you’ll know why. We are very proud of our own Chief Jones for his dedication during the last 14 months and for being the CLEE “valedictorian” for 2019. Congratulations, Chief! 👏👏
