A contract for services between
the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office and Colerain Township is no more.
Six deputies dedicated to
patrolling the township under the contract will now be reassigned.
The decision came during a trustees meeting in Colerain Township
Township officials say the relationship between the two has
become "strained." By canceling this contract, it comes as a hit of
$376,000 to the Sheriff's Office. It's a 25-year relationship that will
end January 12, 2014.
"I think it would be a huge
mistake. We really need the police presence in Colerain Township," said
Pam Turner who lives in Colerain Township.
But, that's not the same
sentiment from township leaders.
"Yes, I think it's the right
decision. The morale, and the challenges with the relationship is running
very high within our police department. I don't need that
distraction. I need our police department focusing on doing the right
thing every day," said James Rowan, township administrator.
Hamilton County Sheriff Jim Neil
was at the meeting Tuesday evening, watching the trustees vote 3-0 to kill the
"I'm responsible for the
people of Hamilton County, including the people of Colerain Township.
These trustees are responsible for the people of Colerain. What they're
doing they feel is right for the people," said Sheriff Neil.
Under the agreement, six deputies
were dedicated to patrolling the Colerain area.
What happens to them?
"The officers aren't going
away. They'll be repurposed. Those deputies will be reassigned,"
Neil told FOX19.
Because of the Sheriff's Office
jurisdiction, they could still patrol the Colerain area, but will no longer
have a dedicated deputy presence in that area.
But, by scrapping their help, the
township sees savings of $376,000. With that money, their plans are to
hire more officers.
"We're hiring four
full-time, and four part-time reserve officers to replace the loss of six
deputies. That's going to cost us approximately $372,000," Rowan told
As for the reserve officers that
will be hired to replace the six deputies lost by canceling this agreement,
Rowan says Colerain Township will officially hire them in January.
