Please practice social distancing from others by being at least 6 ft. away from one another. – Police Lt. Amy Campbell

Loveland, Ohio – Last week Loveland Magazine asked Loveland Police Lt. Amy Campbell for an on-camera interview to discuss the COVID 19 virus and how it was affecting our local police as they go about the day-to-day job of not only protecting themselves so they can stay on the job, but we wanted to know what the Department was asking the community to do and not do during this time.

As it turned, the City put the Mayor in front of our camera instead, however Lt. Campbell did provide this statement that Cassie Mattia read during her interview with the Mayor. (Video Interview – Loveland’s Mayor Talks COVID-19 and What the City is Doing to Keep YOU Safe!)

We thought the statement from Lt. Campbell was important enough to publish as a stand-alone story.

I think at this time, we are all wanting our community to take the measures to stay as healthy as possible.

The Loveland Police Division’s priority is the public’s safety and serving those in our community.

We want our residents to abide by the Shelter in Place order by Ohio Governor DeWine to help stop the spread of the virus.  We will continue to provide excellent customer service to our city, while limiting our in-person interaction with residents.  This is for the safety of our community members and first responders.  We are available by phone 24 hours a day by calling 513-677-7000 for non emergency calls that can include filing reports, answering questions, and reporting suspicious activity.  Please continue to use 9-1-1 for emergencies and crimes in progress.

Please practice social distancing from others by being at least 6 ft. away from one another.

Only essential workers and essential activities are permitted during this order.  If you or your family are outside for exercise or visiting our parks, please practice social distancing from others by being at least 6 ft. away from one another.  We are also wanting to bring awareness to scams and other criminal activity that can take place during these difficult times.  Criminals find ways to steal items from unlocked vehicles and open garages as well as using phone calls and the internet to scam people with requests for donations, selling items, as well as seeking personal information using deception.  There are currently scams being reported involving claims promising distribution of government assistance including relief checks.

Please check out the Loveland Police Department’s social media pages including Facebook, Twitter and Next Door for tips and important information in addition to the Ohio Department of Health’s website.  For those without internet, you can also call 1-833-4-ASK-ODH.

Thank you!  Stay Safe and Healthy!

Lt. Amy Campbell
