Our continued emphasis on residential safety ensures that our city remains one of the safest cities in the state with one of the lowest personal and property crime rates in the country (statistics taken from Money Magazine’s Top 100 Best Places to Live).

The Police Department’s Communications Center is staffed with dedicated personnel who provide 24-hour operations for all emergency, non-emergency and TDD (hearing impaired) telephone lines for both Police and Fire services that facilitate easy and quick access and contact for all members of the community.

CALEA National Accreditation
The Highland Heights Police Department is nationally recognized by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). The CALEA program identifies mandatory standards that require agencies to meet or exceed policies and procedures on life, health, safety and legal issues, as well as conditions to reduce risk and liability exposure. The Police Dept. must document proof of compliance, and live by the letter and spirit of the CALEA standards in order to maintain recognition status.

Our Mission
Our mission is to create an atmosphere to preserve the safety and security of the community by providing quality police service in a fair and impartial manner. We believe this can be accomplished by interacting and responding to community needs, emphasizing integrity and professionalism.

Civic Ready Notification System

As a city, our goal is to provide quality safety services to the residents of our community. We believe this can be accomplished by a proactive safety services force with the ability to communicate critical information in a direct and timely manner. The Civic Ready Notification System allows residents the opportunity to provide contact information so that we may reach you via phone call, text message, email, or all three, in emergency situations. In addition, you may sign up for weather alerts and other less critical information. PLEASE SIGN UP TODAY!
