ABOUT THE HILLIARD DIVISION OF POLICE — Started in 1957 as a special police force to serve the growing village of Hilliard, the Division of Police has developed into an organization with a strength of 60 police officers and 14 support team members. HPD serves the City of Hilliard and Norwich Township, providing policing and community safety services to a geographical area of approximately 17 square miles and 38,000 residents. For more information, visit www.hilliardohio.gov/police or find the agency on Facebook and Twitter. ABOUT THE CITY OF HILLIARD — The original Hilliard area was platted in 1853 after John Reed Hilliard purchased 10 acres of land in western Franklin County. The City of Hilliard has since blossomed into a vibrant and diverse community that is transforming into a more connected and urban city that offers a range of housing types, sizes and prices to ensure that the area meets the needs of all ages, income levels and cultures. Old Hilliard continues to attract residents with museums, parks, outdoor performances, monuments, farmers’ markets, festivals, parades and popular restaurants. Businesses share the common mission of embracing the past while welcoming the future, and will move Hilliard forward on its journey toward a more modern lifestyle that still embraces the Hilliard spirit of “Real People. Real Possibilities.”

I-270 TRAFFIC ENFORCEMENT BLITZ BEGINS TODAY — Today the Hilliard Division of Police and Ohio State Highway Patrol announced the launch of a traffic enforcement blitz on I-270 in the construction zone. The goal of this initiative is to persuade drivers to slow down, pay attention to driving and get over for emergency vehicles. In the last six months, our agency has responded to 189 crashes just in our 2-mile stretch of I-270 in each direction. Three of our cruisers were hit within a six-week period. Many crashes are being caused by drivers following too closely, speeding or making unsafe lane changes. Our agencies will be aggressively enforcing traffic laws in this area via cruisers on the ground and an aviation unit. Don't let yourself become someone paying an expensive traffic ticket or — even worse — involved in a crash. #SlowDown #DrivePatiently #WatchForLights #ArriveSafely

Today is a victory for safety in the Hilliard community. This investigation began with a student confiding in a school resource officer, and illustrates the valuable role those officers play in the schools. We are grateful to our law enforcement partners at the F.B.I.’s Joint Terrorism Task Force and the Franklin County Prosecutor’s Office for their assistance. Working with our partners at Hilliard City Schools, this case shows that our community has a zero tolerance policy for threats of violence in our schools.

Today is #LawEnforcementAppreciationDay. We want to thank everyone for their kind words, as well as send our own "thank you" to our fellow law enforcement men and women. Hilliard: We are so grateful to serve a wonderful community and have your unwavering support. Special shout out to Credit Union of Ohio and Texas Roadhouse for surprising us with goodies today. #thankyou

It's been a fun year here on our Facebook page, from the CHIPS video, the Funnel Chunnel Challenge at the fair, a new police dog, a police officer buying car seats, officers saving a life through CPR and more. Here's a look back at some of our most popular posts of 2017. Stay tuned for more fun in 2018!

Our entire HPD family joins in wishing you a safe and happy Christmas today.

What a wonderful and unique gift we received today. This wooden work of art was donated to our agency by two of our Citizens Police Academy alumni, Howard Mazei and Renata Reaume-Mazei, as a token of appreciation. It was handmade by their brother, who is a Marine veteran. Our patrol officers enjoyed talking with them about the craftsmanship that went into this awesome display. We're looking forward to finding a place on our walls for it to be admired for years to come! We say it all the time, but our CPA is THE BEST!

We have the best business partners. Thank you to our fantastic neighbors at Hamilton Safe Products for donating a safe, which will be utilized by our detective bureau!

FYI: There will be road work on Cemetery Road tomorrow.

What a FANTASTIC day we had during our 3rd Annual Shop With A Cop. It’s been a busy morning of shopping, pizza, games, cookies, movies, gift wrapping and some quality time with officers and 12 deserving kids. Big thanks to our CPA volunteers, Target and Jet’s Pizza!

Look for us at Target this Saturday as we hold our third annual Shop with a Cop event. This is an event we look forward to hosting all year long! Twelve deserving children will have the opportunity to spend $250 on Christmas gifts. After we shop, we will head back to the police station to wrap the gifts while watching Christmas movies and enjoying pizza and cookies. #HilliardCares #ShopWithACop

Needless to say, K9 Jawaak has an active personality. And, a face for the camera, too! Thanks for profiling our newest officer, This Week News.
