Several political subdivisions within Clermont County have secured enhanced law enforcement coverage for their citizens through contracts with the Sheriff’s Office. Currently there are a total of five such jurisdictions that have contractual coverage: Batavia Township, Monroe Township, Village of Moscow, Tate Township, and Washington Township. The contract cars provide additional hours of law enforcement services for the contracting jurisdictions. Contract Deputies are available to the contracting entity for enhanced patrol, traffic enforcement, and community events. A significant amount of the costs associated with contractual law enforcement services have been covered through U.S. Department of Justice COPS grants.
Additionally, through funding under a U.S. Department of Justice grant, Amelia High School and Grant Career Center in Bethel have contracted with the Sheriff’s Office to provide School Resource Officers on both campuses.
