Chief Maples and the Chillicothe Police Department are
implementing some new programs at the Chillicothe PD. We want your
first new program is Coffee With a Cop. The key to Coffee with a Cop is that it opens the door for interactions outside of the
crisis situations which typically bring law enforcement officers and community members together. Citizens of Chillicothe and
surrounding areas can come and talk to the police officers and get to know them on a different level.
we are bringing back our Youth Safety Talks. During our
Youth Safety Talks, we partner with prior drug offenders who are in recovery and want to make a change in their community by partnering with us. We want to do this to get
a head start with the youth of our community and show them that we are there to help
them and prevent wrongful actions in the future.
Third, coming this spring or summer,
we will be starting our first Citizens Police Academy to familiarize the citizens
with the day-to-day operations of the police department and learn why we do what we do. Most likely,
this will be a6-8 week course, one day a week, where a class comes in, so we can
help the community better understand the police department.
Finally, our officers have been working on a
Church Security Program PowerPoint. Over time, we
would like to meet with any of the local churches about church security and
show them how to prevent critical incidents within their church.
We need your feedback on these programs. We want to create a partnership with our community and build the best relationship we can with our community. We are in the beginning stages of planning for these events, so that is why we would appreciate your
feedback. Call us, email us, message us or send us a comment on
page, or tweet us on our Twitter
