Transparency at the Piqua Police Department (Media Release Number: 18MR06)

Posted on: August 15th, 2018 No Comments

 

The Piqua Police Department is constantly balancing the public interests of knowing what we are doing with the legal protections afforded to private individuals and the integrity of criminal investigations. Our records belong to our citizens, so we have systems in place to ensure the public of the transparency they deserve.

“We got some statistics from one of our public information platforms today,” says Piqua Chief of Police Bruce Jamison. “This shows us that thousands of people have seen our public information logs. Our goal is to be sure everyone that is interested is aware of the tools our department makes available so they are conscious of what their tax dollars are being used for.”

Chief Jamison goes on to explain how PROTECT officer help in teaching citizens how to make the best use of these tools based on their personal interests.

Public Information Logs and Media Arrest Summaries

Three times a week, we publish a report that shows every incident we responded to after we have reviewed it for any information we are prohibited by law from releasing. In very unusual situations where we have requested a warrant for an arrest on a pending case, we might redact that arrest record. These logs are first sent to media outlets. We then do some further redaction for privacy concerns and publish the reports to the general public to https://issuu.com/piquapd. Because some of these redactions are still public record, we release the redacted information upon request. There is a link to this platform on our website, http://piquaoh.org/city-departments/police-department/police-public-information-activity-logs/ and our website explains how to understand this information in proper context.

Community Crime Map

Every interested citizen is encouraged to go to https://communitycrimemap.com/, zoom into Piqua, and see a map of our incidents. These incidents are downloaded around 5am daily. Citizens can even set up “crime alerts” so they receive an emailed report of incidents that would interest them (all within a certain radius of their home, all of a certain type in Piqua, etc.) at the frequency they desire. This is a customized neighborhood watch report.

Personal Assistance

We understand that not all citizens are able to access these without assistance. If any Piqua resident would like help getting to our published information, customized to their particular interest, we’d like to help. By calling 937-778-2027, Option 2, and ask to speak to the on-duty PROTECT officer (24/7), we will personally direct you to this information. If they are not available at that moment, please leave a message with your contact information. You can also email policePROTECT@piquaoh.org and your email will be responded to by an on-duty PROTECT officer or assigned to one within 24-hours.
