The Village of Newtown, Ohio Police Department
Our ten sworn Police Officers and civilian support staff are here to serve the citizens of our community.
We build programs and people that support our Community Oriented Public Safety (COPS) philosophy. This means that all of our actions are directed at making the Village of Newtown a safe and enjoyable place to live where citizens and visitors feel that they are partners with the Police Department and that they can come to us with any question, concern, or issue. The primary purpose of this partnership is to prevent criminal and safety related problems from occurring.
Message From The Chief
Welcome to the Newtown Police Department web site. I hope you will find our web site to be informative and helpful. Whether you are checking crime stats, or “just checking out” your local police department, we have what you are looking for.
The Newtown Police Department is made up of dedicated professional men and women who rally around one goal: “to assure each citizen the opportunity to enjoy life in peace and free from criminal acts”. That is our mission. In carrying out this goal we realize we can’t do it alone; therefore, we forge partnerships with our residents, our businesses and our schools to make our village safe.
We are dedicated to our service and our work is steered by our motto — Salus populi suprema lex esto - “The welfare of the people shall be the supreme law”. It is our people that makes us different. We hold high standards and work hard to provide the highest level of quality service to our community. We value our personnel and their contributions to our work. We pride ourselves on being cooperative with other law enforcement agencies, and work hard to maintain positive ties with our citizens and guests.
We are also involved in numerous Mutual Aid partnerships with our area law enforcement partners. We are proud members of the Hamilton County Police Association (HCPA), Hamilton County Association of Chiefs of Police, HCPA SWAT, Hamilton County Heroin Coalition/Task Force, and Fraternal Order of Police (FOP). We are committed to these partnerships because they help us provide the best, most efficient and professional service to our community.
Should a resident need a police officer for any reason, whether a simple service call or an emergency, please call 911. Many people are reluctant to call 911 not wanting to bother emergency personnel for simple service calls such as barking dogs, parking complaints or loud music, please do not hesitate to call the Hamilton County Communication Center at 513−825−2280 or the PD non-emergency number at 513−561−7697.
Thomas Synan Jr.
Chief of Police
