Since 1961 the Mifflin Township Police Department has been run by six full-time officers and three part-time officers. The township officers patrol the unincorporated portion of Mifflin Township. It is their mission to provide the community with professional and dedicated officers who maintain order, peace and give a sense of security.
The Mifflin Township Police Department has been in operation since 1961 and serves the unincorporated portion of Mifflin Township. In November 1981, the voters passed a tax levy to support a full-time Division of Police.
The Department has five full-time officers to maintain 24-hour police protection. Three part-time officers, who receive the same police academy training that is required of full-time officers, provide additional manpower. The department conducts additional on-the-job training for all new officers. Because of their training, experience and dedication, part-time officers are often hired when a full-time position becomes available.
The department patrols the unincorporated area of the Township—approximately 3.9 square miles with a population of less than 3,000. The department is dispatched by the Franklin County Communications Center by calling 9-1-1.
The division is tasked with enhancing the quality of life by efficiently and effectively maintaining order, suppressing crime and maintaining the peace for the citizens of Mifflin Township.
The Mifflin Township Division of Police believes that earning the trust and confidence of residents is a critical component to creating a safe community.
In order to maintain public trust, the division takes seriously all complaints of misconduct in accordance with policy and applicable federal, state and local laws, municipal and county rules and the requirements of any collective bargaining agreements. The township is committed to investigating all concerns of misconduct by employees. It is also the policy of this Department to ensure that the community can report misconduct without concern for reprisal or retaliation.
Citizens are encouraged to contact us regarding any incident you believe to be unreasonable or objectionable, or conversely, any exceptional behavior you feel deserves recognition.
Anonymous and third party complaints will be accepted and investigated to the extent possible assuming sufficient information is provided.
All complaints alleging misconduct by an employee of the township will be investigated by a supervisor. Complaints alleging serious misconduct will be invested by the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office Internal Affairs Bureau.
All complaints shall be completely investigated within 60 days from the date of the complaint. The Chief of Police may, on a case-by-case basis, grant an extension to this time limit, at her discretion, based on extenuating circumstances. Once the investigation is completed, the complainant(s) shall be advised of the findings and whether or not any corrective and or disciplinary action resulted.
You may contact us by phone, by calling (614) 471-4494 and asking to speak with the police chief or township administrator, as you feel is most appropriate.
Visit us in person at the police station located at 2455 Agler Rd., Columbus, OH 43224 and request to speak with a supervisor who will take the complaint in writing.
