Miami Twp. is joining a coalition of communities to be part of a program mapping crime trends.
The agreement with the Tactical Crime Suppression Unit of the Miami Valley Communicatons Council will more efficiently use township patrols by targeting crimes that occur in certain areas and at certain times, said Miami Twp. Police Chief Ron Hess.
The partnership will also involve Centerville, Germantown, Kettering, Miamisburg, Moraine, Oakkwood, Springboro and West Carrollton, documents show.
“This would allow us to do our job better……..to see where the hot spots are,” Hess said.
The agreement would involve the jurisdictions creating a database crime-mapping program that would be overseen by Kettering, Hess said.
It would cost the township about $2,847, records show.
