Uniformed Patrol

Our uniformed patrol is currently staffed by 4 Sergeants, 3 Corporals, 10 full-time Police Officers and 2 part-time Police Officers who operate in shifts resulting in 24 hour coverage 7 days a week. Officers assigned to the section may be seen patrolling in a marked police cruiser, on foot patrol or patrolling on a bicycle. The primary responsibilities of patrol officers are to respond to dispatched calls for service, traffic enforcement, conduct preliminary investigations, and maintain a positive relationship with the community. These officers also provide many other services to the community such as vacation house checks, extra patrols, opening locked vehicles, well-being checks, and escorts.  


The primary function of the investigations division is to assist with follow-up investigations on serious criminal offenses. Due to the increased call volume, the department currently has 1 Detective in the investigations division to conduct follow-up investigations. If you have any information to report about a crime please contact the police department at 937.748.1267 or report a crime tip at: 

Community Policing

Clearcreek Township's policing efforts includes selective traffic enforcement with the use of speed monitor signs that are placed in reported problem areas throughout the township. The department also offers community oriented programs such as Safety Town, child fingerprinting, and our National Night Out event that is held on the first Tuesday in August each year. 

The Clearcreek Township Police Department is a major partner with the Warren county Drug Task Force and the Warren County Tactical Response Unit. The most important part of effective law enforcement is communication between our community and officers. We encourage residents and businesses to become acquainted with our officers to strengthen the partnership with the community.
