The police department in this western Hamilton County suburb is among the first four Ohio law enforcement agencies to adopt new standards for use of deadly force by police.
The standards adopted last year permit police to use deadly force only when officers are defending themselves or other people from serious injury or death.
The other agencies are the Medina and Coldwater police departments and the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office.
The four departments also adopted first-ever standards for police recruiting and hiring, which set a goal of a qualified diverse workforce while providing equal employment opportunity.
Gov. John Kasich's Ohio Collaborative Community-Police Advisory Board created the standards after a series of fatal police shootings.
Ohio law enforcement agencies must adopt the standards as minimum department policies by next year.
