Delhi Township Police Department
Programs & Services
The Delhi Township Police Department is committed to the organizational philosophy of Community Policing. On the basis of such a philosophy, a number of partnerships have been established between the Police and the community. There are ongoing partnerships with the Coalition on Aging, DARE, Delshire Manor Community, Citizen's Police Academy, Block Watch Program, Adopt-a-Spot Clean-up Project, and Law Enforcement Exploring. In addition to Community Policing, the Police Department has also been awarded national accreditation status. These philosophies set the tone as the Delhi Township Police Department attempts to provide the community with the finest law enforcement services available.
Citizens on Patrol (COP) is a name used to describe a special group of law enforcement volunteers. They are citizens who are all members of our Delhi Citizens Police Association (DCPA) who, after being screened, having their background checked, and being trained by the Delhi Township Police Department, patrol the community acting as “eyes and ears” only for the Delhi Township Police Department. Citizens on Patrol groups have been in use throughout the United States for over 20 years. The number of individual Citizens on Patrol volunteers is estimated to be over 75,000 with groups in every state of the nation. (Source www.nacop.org)
The Delhi Township Citizens on Patrol normally patrol four-hour shifts and make frequent stops in our local businesses. According to business owners and employees, they feel appreciative of having the “extra patrol”. The COP team members document any complaints the businesses may have and forward the documentation to the Police Department which then takes the necessary steps to address any issues the businesses have. Citizens on Patrol members wear jackets and hats which state that they are members of the COP team. They also carry Police-issue radios and are trained to contact the Police on them in case of an emergency. Members also assist with special functions such as “National Night Out” and the annual “Skirt Game”.
Delhi Township Police Department invites you to take part
in our very exciting Citizens Police Academy!
FREE if you live or work in Delhi Township!
Our Citizens Police Academy provides the citizens of Delhi Township with a hands-on opportunity to learn more about their Police Department and the different tasks and services the officers and staff provide every day. All classes are led by Delhi Township Police Officers and will meet at the Delhi Township Police Department located at 934 Neeb Road.
Participants that complete the academy, including a four-hour ride-along, will receive a certificate of completion and are eligible to join the Delhi Citizens Police Association - a volunteer group that supports the police department and receives continuing law enforcement education.
The Delhi Citizens Police Association (DCPA) was formed in 1999 as a non-profit organization. Their mission is to assist the Delhi Police Department. They raise funds to help the Police Department with necessary items which are not normally provided in the township Police budget. The membership is comprised of residents of Delhi Township or anyone who has completed the Delhi Citizens Police Academy. Graduates may then join the DCPA and continue on to join the Citizens on Patrol program.
Some of the items purchased for the Delhi Police Department include a generator for a multi-use vehicle, a bicycle and new uniforms for the Bike Patrol, Stinger flashlights for all the officers, workout equipment, and a Redman suit for training.
The DCPA has also assisted the citizens of Delhi by helping with the Delhi Skirt Game, Concerts in the Park, Delhi Business Association Easter Egg Hunt, Crimestoppers Telethon, and other functions within the township and Greater Cincinnati area.
The Delhi Citizens Police Association assisted with the departments first annual “Kids n’ Cops” Program. The program was developed by the Delhi Skirt Game Committee in cooperation with the Delhi police and fire departments. The event was held on Saturday December 12th 2009, and assisted 84 kids (24 families) while participating in the first ever shopping spree at the Target in Western Hills. Each child had the ability to spend $100 on both needed items, and wants.
This event would not have been possible without the generosity of sponsors, and private donations, that support the Delhi Skirt game throughout the year.

The Delhi Township Police Department has sponsored a Police Explorers Post since 1992 and hundreds of Delhi teenagers have experienced a first-hand look at law enforcement careers. Our Explorers have been training in police tactics, riding along with officers, and competing in roll-playing scenarios at local and national competitions fort the past fifteen years!

You may have noticed that the Police Department has expanded the manner by which it offers its patrol presence in the community. In addition to the traditional marked patrol cars, the Police Department is providing patrol coverage on bicycles. This diversity of coverage enables Patrol Officers to go almost everywhere and, in many cases, have presence in those places where the criminal is least likely to expect them.
All marked patrol units are now equipped with automatic external defibrillators (AEDs). These units enable Police Officers to assist the EMS Units of the Fire Department in first responder care of non-traumatic cardiac arrest. In other words, medical intervention for cardiac patients is started much earlier than previously possible. Getting the heart back to its proper rhythm will increase the chances of survival and the odds that responding emergency medical personnel will be successful in saving the patient’s life.
Officer William R. Murphy provides support to the children and faculty at the Rapid Run Middle School, Delhi Middle School, Delshire Elementary School, and C.O. Harrison Elementary School. The Delhi Township Police Department has extensive experience working with students, having provided the students of Delhi with the D.A.R.E. program for several years.
The Delhi Township Police Department is pleased to be able to provide the students and staff at the local schools with the services of this fine Officer. You can contact your Officer Murphy via email, telephone (513-922-0060), or in writing at the address listed below.
If you have a family member that is a resident of our community that has special needs (Alzheimer's, medical condition, etc.) you may register them with our agency should a condition exist where emergency assistance is needed. Please contact the Police Department and provide them with the neccessary information for this registration. Please remember to call and update this information regularly.
Our department is called upon periodically to investigate potential problem areas with regards to speeding complaints, lack of or improperly placed traffic signs, and visual obstructions. Our agency provides a service to the community to look into these problem areas. Officers conduct speed surveys, complete scale diagrams, and look into concerns about visual obstructions.
The Traffic Analysis is a report that contains information gathered from analyzing traffic patterns, automobile accidents, and requests from the citizens for extra patrol in certain parts of the Township. For example, if data on the report shows numerous auto accidents at Delhi & Glen Oaks, the Patrol Division will employ selective enforcement at that specific intersection in order to curtail the accidents.
A Speed Monitoring Device is also placed at strategic locations throughout the Township to help keep motorists aware of the speed at which they are traveling. If you have a location suggestion for traffic monitoring, please contact the Police Department at 513-922-0060 Monday through Friday 8:00am - 10:00pm.
If you are going on vacation, notify the Delhi Township Police Department. Patrol Officers will intermittently check on your residence while you are away.
If you find yourself locked out of your own vehicle, a Patrol Officer can assist you with regaining entry.

The fingerprints and information from the applicant’s Driver’s License or state ID is encrypted and electronically stored in the computer.

No criminal history is sent over the Internet. Results are mailed to the address provided by the applicant. If you are an employer or agency and want the results mailed directly to you, instruct your applicants to provide the WebCheck operator with your business address, NOT the address of the applicants.
