Division of Police
Chief’s Message
I am proud and honored to lead the Whitehall Division of Police, and to be policing in a vibrant and evolving community. I firmly believe that our reputation throughout the State of Ohio as an outstanding police agency is well deserved. It is the excellent work of our dedicated staff of patrol officers, detectives, support personnel, communications officers, and clerical staff that has earned us this reputation.

As a full service police agency it is our responsibility to ensure public safety, regulate the orderly flow of traffic and help increase the quality of life in our neighborhoods. A full service police agency means just that. Service is what we do; and doing it well is the hallmark that separates excellent policing from mediocre public service.

Policing is always about people dealing with people and you can have confidence that we have selected only the best of the best to serve you as members of the Whitehall Division of Police. Our personnel have received high levels of training and organizationally we are committed to continuing training and education to stay sharp and up on the trends of a very rapidly evolving field. We deploy the best equipment and are on top of the latest technology to assure that your police employees have the necessary tools, experience, and training to successfully accomplish their mission.

I hope that you find these web pages helpful and informative. I always welcome suggestions or comments on how we can improve our service. Please utilize our comments / complaints / compliments page to communicate with us so we can continuously improve our services to you.

As Sir Robert Peel (the founder of modern policing) said; “The police are the public, the public are the police…”and without the aid and support of the community we would not be effective in our roll. Thank you for your continued support and assistance in keeping Whitehall a safe place that provides opportunity for all.
