The Loveland Police Division offers a variety of services to our residents. The most commonly requested services are listed below by frequency:
Local History Checks
System Manager, 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 before scheduling an appointment.
In addition to foot and motor vehicle 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 deterring and detecting crime. Criminals rarely look for officers on bike and bicycles can quickly get into many areas that a motor vehicle can not.
Systems Manager Tina Kerns oversees our data and authorizes the release of all public information. Please visit the Citizens Request Tracker to complete a public records request.

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. Call 513-677-7000 to reach a dispatcher.
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. Please request this service through the Citizen Request Tracker.
Loveland officers conduct tours of our facility for various groups throughout the year. The tour includes our administrative area, dispatch center, vehicles and equipment. Please contact the department at 513-583-3000 to schedule a tour.
Citizen’s Police Academy
Every fall Loveland Police partner with neighboring police agencies and 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 include a K9 demonstration, interactive use of force video simulation, jail tour, legal issues, and investigations. Please contact the department at 513-583-3000 if you are interested in attending the citizen’s police academy or complete an application by clicking here.
