Community Services

The Loveland Police Division offers the following services to our residents.

Local History Checks

Our Record’s Administrator, Tina Kerns, is available to conduct local history checks for our residents from 8:00am to 4:00pm Monday through Friday. History checks are often required by employers, volunteer organizations, churches, and others. Checks are for Loveland offenses only. We are not a certified Webcheck location. Our history checks may not satisfy the requirements of a background check required by your employer. Check with your employer about their specific requirements.

Bike Patrol

In addition to foot and motor vechicle patrols, the Loveland Police Department has 6 bicycles used for patrol work. The bike patrol is staffed by volunteer officers who patrol the neighborhoods, businesses, bike trail, and other areas of the city on bicycle. They are also used for special events, like parades, and for targeted enforcement to address specific crime problems. Bicycles can be a very effective means of detering and detecting crime. Criminals rarely look for officers on bike and bicycles can quickly get into many areas that a motor vehicle can not.

Community Resource Officer

In addition to his normal patrol work, Officer Chad Caudell is our Community Resource Officer. Officer Caudell handles a variety of community related programs including the citizen’s police academy, drug take back, child seat installation assitance, crime prevention issues, special events, and department tours. You can email Officer Caudell at

Citizen’s Police Academy

Every fall the Lovleand Police host a 10 week citizen’s police academy. The academy typically meets for several hours each week and introduces our residents to the role the police department plays in the community. Topics covered in the academy inculde a K9 demonstration, interactive use of force video simulation, jail tour, legal issues, and investigations. Please contact Officer Chad Caudell at the email link above if you are interested in attending the citizen’s police academy.

K9 Patrol

Sergeant Jose Alejandro and Azar have been patrolling Loveland since 2007. Azar is trained as a patrol and narcotics dog. He is responsible for numerous drug seizures and criminal apprehensions. After a pursuit of a stolen vehicles in 2011, Azar succesfully tracked, and aided in the apprehension of, 4 suspects in a home invasion robbery in the City of Cincinnati.

In addition to his patrol work Azar assists at various special events, including the National Night Out and the Citizen’s Police Academy.


If you lock your keys in your car we can help. Every Loveland Police vehicle carries a “lock out” kit capable of gaining access to most vehicles.

Pole Mounted Radar (PMR)

The pole mounted radar is placed around Loveland where speeding issues have been identified. It has a built in radar unit and display screen that displays the driver’s speed. The unit also collects data on the vehicles that pass and is instrumental in identifying speed issue locations and also dispelling speeding perceptions. To request the pole mounted radar for your neighborhood please email Officer Chad Caudell at
