Police services in unincorporated Washington Township are provided through a contract with the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office (MCSO) – an arrangement that offers the quality and efficiencies of a large department with the advantages of local control. The local headquarters is located on the second floor of the Washington Township Government Center.
Property Crimes District detectives have a 76% clearance rate, well above the national average and also well above the 42% cleared in 2010.
The township entered 2011 with a new police services contract with the Sheriff’s Office. In addition to paying the county for its services, the township provides cruisers, equipment, office space and office supplies for deputies at our substation.
The sheriff’s office has been a strong partner with the township, collaborating on child safety seat inspections, providing identity theft information at community shred days, and coordinating drug drop off days at township fire stations.
The township's police services are considered among the best in the nation. In 2009, MCSO became the first sheriff's office in Ohio to earn the Flagship Agency Award by meeting all accreditation standards set by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies. All aspects of operations are accredited – from dispatch to road patrol and the jail.
Contracting with the sheriff's office provides significant economies of scale. Residents pay less per person for police protection than many other localities and, in return for their investment, receive a variety of support services that smaller departments frequently can not afford.
The Washington Township substation is staffed by a police director, six sergeants and 25 deputies. Besides street patrol personnel, the substation staff includes investigators, a community education officer, school resource officer and a traffic officer.
