Loveland, Ohio – Police Chief Sean Rahe took to the open forum microphone at the December 12 Council meeting to responded to a WCPO Article regarding police discipline.

Rahe noted that WCPO surveyed law enforcement agencies in the Cincinnati area and concluded that the Loveland Police Department had the highest documented discipline per officer. He said that many viewers of the WCPO story would relate discipline to bad behavior and punishment, which isn’t the purpose of discipline in the Loveland Department. He said that the purpose is, “Growth.”

“I am sure there are people that will have some concerns,” said Rahe. “WCPO said that these are bad examples. I disagree.”

Rahe talked about the department’s core values: integrity, continuous improvement, and customer oriented service.

Rahe said to summarize he would tell a short story and related two incidents involving Officer Amy Campbell who wrecked two police cars in six months while on probation. Rahe said that they could have dismissed Campbell, but instead, “Found something very interesting,” a broken down driver’s seat of the Crown Victoria she was driving.

Campbell would go on to receive the Gallantry Star for Lifesaving.

  1. I demand that WCPO launch an investigation into the average number of factual and typographical errors committed on a per reporter basis, for all the major news outlets in the Cincinnati area. We the readers demand public access to this important information!

  2. First, I want to thank citizen for the kind comment about Officer Amy Campbell.
