Glendale Police Department provides high quality, customer-focused law
enforcement services to the picturesque and historic Village of Glendale,
Ohio. Located in the north central region of the Cincinnati metropolitan
area, the primarily residential village is close to numerous retail,
entertainment and industrial centers, and is bordered to the east by I-75.
The police department continues to operate from the same historic
station that was built and placed into service in 1871. The building was
specifically constructed as a police station, and is considered one of the
oldest continuously operating police stations in the United States. The
police station is located at 301 East Sharon Road, just east of the CSX
The Glendale Police Department has been under the leadership of Chief
Dave Warman since May of 2007. The department proudly functions as
a highly cohesive team, dedicated to the constant improvement of
operations and ultimately, the quality of life in Glendale. Including the
chief, the department has seven full time and five part time officers.
Civilian personnel consist of a police /court clerk, and a school crossing
guard. Three civilian volunteer clerks also assist the police department.
These volunteers, through the generous donation of their time, assist
officers and office staff with a variety of clerical and public contact
There are several numbers to contact the police department via
telephone; depending on the nature of the complaint or service desired.
The Glendale Police Department utilizes the Hamilton County Communications
Center for our 24-hour dispatching and 911 services. The police office is

hours, the business line (771-7645) is forwarded to a cell phone carried

Glendale Police Department Special Care Alert Information Program
The Glendale Police Department embraces its role in the community, and seeks to provide exemplary service to those in the Village, consistent with the rights and dignity of all persons. In our latest effort to ensure the safety and security of all citizens of the Village, the department is introducing a program for individuals diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, dementia or those that require other special care. This program will seek information from these individuals or their caregivers to assist the police in rapidly responding in case the person wanders off, becomes lost or experiences a medical emergency.
If you are a caregiver for someone in the Village or have an elderly family member who has been diagnosed with a condition which may result in them becoming lost or wandering away, or who may require other special care, please complete a Special Care Alert Information Form. The form is available on the Police Department website here. This one-page form includes information that will help the police identify the individual such as height, weight, birth date, vehicle information as well as emergency contact information and medical assistance information. We also request a recent photograph of the person be provided.
All information provided will be held securely at the Police Department. Please contact the Glendale Police Department at (513) 771-7645 should you have any questions about this program.
