The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office is what is referred to as a "Full Service" Sheriff's Office under Ohio Statute charged with:  the responsibility of maintaining public peace and protecting lives and property of Hamilton county citizens; operation of the county correction facilities; and serving the courts.   Their Sheriff's office basically performs these responsibilities through four major divisions, comprised of the Patrol, Corrections, Court Services, and Records Division, and several special service units.

The contact Miami Township residents would generally have with the Sheriff's Office is the Patrol Division, which is responsible for providing primary law enforcement service to the area.  This function is provided by the marked Sheriff's Patrol Units which in addition to responding to citizens calls, provide general preventative patrol.  They also address specific problems involving crime and traffic.  Detectives in the Criminal Investigation Section provide follow up investigation on most offenses and on scene investigation in major offenses.  The Miami Township area is routinely patrolled by a regular Sheriff's Unit, and a second Sheriff''s Unit which is contracted for by the Miami Township Trustees to further enhance law enforcement services to township residents.  These primary units are also backed to by the Sheriff's Patrol Units in areas adjacent to Miami Township in event of emergencies.


In addition to the basic services noted above, the Patrol Units are backed up on an as needed basis, by highly trained specialized units, which include helicopters, boats, K-9 and drug dog units, narcotics and vice units, horse units and bomb squad.  We are happy to be able to provide the residents of Miami Township with professional, efficient, and effective law enforcement services.   For contact with our Patrol Division for non-emergency purpose call 825-1500.   For emergency service contact use "911".
