Piqua City offices will be closed on Monday, December 24th, 2018, and Tuesday, December 25th, 2018, along with Tuesday, January 1st, 2019, to allow city employees to observe the Christmas & New Year holidays with their families.

 

Garbage, refuse, and recycling collections will not be made on Tuesday, December 25th, 2018, nor on Tuesday, January 1st, 2019.  Those collection days will be 1 day later those weeks.

 

The City urges all customers to place their containers at their usual collection points the evening before for early pick-ups the following day.

 

 

 

Bait Packages Deployed to Deter Porch Pirates

Posted on: December 17th, 2018 No Comments

 

 

The season is now upon us for increased thefts of packages from porches. We had two packages stolen from porches last week. The Piqua Police Department would like to engage with our citizens on a new theft-deterrence program here in Piqua.

Piqua Chief of Police Bruce Jamison stated, “We know our citizens appreciate some of our previous decoy efforts and we think we will find some citizens that will want to participate with this program.”

The department has obtained tracking equipment to allow us to track shipping packages left on a porch or visible to the public, after it has been stolen by an opportunistic criminal. We’d also like to suggest ways for our citizens to avoid becoming victims, such as:

  • Installing video surveillance and warning signs where packages are delivered.
  • Consider installing a “parcel box” to accept deliveries and then be locked.
  • Schedule packages to arrive when someone is home.
  • Send packages to a secure location rather than leaving them unattended.

 

Piqua residents who would like to “host” a decoy package for us are asked to email protect@piquaoh.org to make arrangements. We are likely to target areas where thefts are occurring, so we would like to have a database of potential hosts around the city.

Everyone is encouraged to share the existence of this bait package program extensively. We hope it serves as a deterrent to the “porch pirates” that spread the opposite of holiday cheer in Piqua.

Media Release: Walmart Shots Fired

Posted on: December 10th, 2018 No Comments

 

 

On Monday, December 10, 2018, at 2:13 pm, we received a report of an active shooter at Walmart, 1300 E. Ash St., Piqua. Officers from the Piqua Police Department, Miami County Sheriff’s Office, Ohio State Highway Patrol, and Troy Police Department responded immediately. Officers worked to secure the scene, determine what happened to cause this report, and secure school facilities in the area.

Based on store surveillance recordings, we were able to determine that all involved parties had left prior to law enforcement’s arrival. A confrontation outside the rear of the store had occurred around 2:12 pm, and one subject fired from a handgun towards another subject leaving the confrontation at a high rate of speed.

We seek the public’s assistance in identifying the vehicles and or persons in the attached images. Please call 937-615-8477(TIPS), or send anonymous tips via the Submit-A-Tip methods available on our website, www.piquaohpd.org.
