Hamilton Police Department News

It's Throwback Thursday time once again! Today, our throwback is in honor of one of our corrections officers, Steve Poulemanos. CO Poulemanos retired as a Captain in 2012 and went on to serve HPD in a CO role for the past 5 1/2 years. His last working day was today, and his last official day is tomorrow. He will be missed! Enjoy your retirement, sir (finally)! And thank you for your years of service! #TBT

*** Help Needed! *** At about 7 PM on 1-15-18, a white male subject entered the Discount Tobacco at 1018 Main Street and displayed a handgun to the clerk and demanded money. The subject got away with an undetermined small amount of money. Attached are three screenshots from the store video. The clothing is distinctive, and we hope that helps you help us ID the subject. If you have a possible tip, call Det. Paul Webb at 868-5811 EXT 1262.

If you're looking for today's request for tips, we don't have any! You've helped us ID our suspects from last week, and other current cases are well in-hand! Instead, we'd like to take a moment to just let our citizens know how much we appreciate you and your support of our department. We hope your 2018 is off to a great start. Stay safe. Stay warm. Stay vigilant. And keep being awesome!

Remembering Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (January 15, 1929 - April 4, 1968), civil rights activist, Baptist minister, son, brother, father, and husband. ---------------------- Trivia: Do you know when MLK Day became a federal holiday? On November 2, 1983, President Ronald Reagan signed a bill creating a federal holiday to honor King, which was observed for the first time on January 20, 1986. In 1992, President George H. W. Bush's proclaimed the holiday to be observed on the third Monday of January each year, near the time of King's birthday.

Though our road crews are surely hard at work, we expect the roads to get worse before they get better today. Instead of venturing out, why not sit down with a cup of coffee, tea or hot cocoa and fill out our digital application for our front desk clerk position? The posting closes tonight! Don't forget to apply!

We look forward to your photos!

We hope everyone celebrating has a wonderful Christmas today! If you are out and see one of our officers, be sure to wish them a Merry Christmas!

Comet wanted us to remind you to have a holly, jolly Christmas tomorrow, and that if you leave treats out for Santa tonight, he and the other reindeer would love a cookie or two as well! Our officers will be working hard tonight, and they'll keep an eye out for you, Comet!

It's the start of the holiday weekend! We'd like to remind everyone that if you have a little too much "Christmas Cheer" this weekend, please don't drive. We want everyone to get safely to their families this holiday season! Get home alive! Don't drink and drive (a car, a bike, or even a sleigh)!

We recently finished our 2017 official department photos. As we were looking back through the photos, we wondered who in the department had changed a lot since our 2006 photos. Congratulations PO Wilson! You win our unofficial "My, how you've changed!" contest. #TBT 2006 versus 2017.

Christmas came early here at HPD! Not only did we get some delicious food delivered Friday, we also received an automated blood pressure cuff from Fort Hamilton Hospital Sports Medicine. Jennifer Mason and Chris Kwee delivered the new device, and Sgt. Robinson and PO Collins tested it out! This will be a great tool for officers to monitor their blood pressure regularly. From UCLA Health: "High blood pressure, also known as hypertension, is called a 'silent killer' because it often has no symptoms and goes undetected in a high percentage of people. If you are diagnosed with high blood pressure, comply with medications to treat it. Untreated high blood pressure leads to stroke, heart attack, kidney failure and heart failure." So it seems like a good thing to keep regular tabs on your blood pressure, and Ft. Hamilton Sports Medicine is helping us do that! Thank you!

This past Saturday, FOP Hamilton Lodge 38 members, family members, and friends "wrapped up" their annual Christmas Caravan with help from Chief Bucheit and other Hamilton Police Officers! An early morning gift-wrapping party started the festivities, followed by a day of handing out gifts and items for a Christmas meal to families in the communities served. Over the last several decades, Hamilton Police Department has worked hand-in-hand with the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #38 to reach out each Christmas to families in need of assistance. Over 25 families in the community were served this year. They are referred to the FOP by our very own patrol officers. Hamilton Police Department worked in conjunction with New Miami, the Butler County Prosecutor's Office, Oxford PD, and Miami University PD to assist the Fraternal Order of Police #38 spread a little extra Christmas cheer from Hamilton up to Oxford. Each family gets a box of food (milk, turkey, eggs, bread and all the fixings for a Christmas meal) along with gifts picked out especially for each of the children. Chief Bucheit was on-hand wrapping gifts at the FOP hall with his entire family and then he went out and helped deliver to a few families too!

Mag Baker from the Butler County United Way stopped in this morning with a delicious holiday surprise for our officers! We want to thank her, the United Way, and the children that partnered with the United Way in this project for the wonderful cards and delicious food (including some healthier fruit and popcorn options)!

Join us in welcoming our two newest police officers! PO Daniel Brown is a 2017 graduate of Sinclair Community College and a 2017 graduate of the Sinclair Police Academy. PO Lucas Meyer is a 2017 graduate of Crown College and a 2017 graduate of the Great Oaks Police Academy. We're looking forward to you getting out on the street and serving our department and city with pride, professionalism, and dedication! Welcome to the team!

When you work with kids every day, you're bound to get inspired by them! One of our School Resource Officers, PO Rodney Wilson, came up with an idea of having kindergarten and first grade age students creating art and sending it overseas to service men and women who can't make it home for Christmas. Not only would the children make colorful designs, but they would be joined Hamilton Police officers! Wilson then coined the program name Coloring with a Cop as Students Salute the Services. This happened yesterday at Fairwood and today at Crawford Woods, both are elementary schools that PO Wilson has assigned to him as his SRO duties. Various Hamilton Police officers stopped in to spend some time making art with the kids. Please click on the following link and enjoy the video TvHamilton filmed of the event (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Je8eDp2v0mE) and check out pictures from today's event at Crawford Woods!

We want to thank Connie and Ryan from Meijer for their delicious lunch! They stopped by with this surprise treat today, which didn't last long thanks to ravenous officers and detectives. We appreciate you and all you do for the community, Ryan and Connie!
