About the Toledo Police Department

The Toledo Police Department is organized into three divisions: Support and Administrative Services Division; Operations Division; and, Investigative Services Division.  

According to the Toledo Police Department, “The Field Operations Division is the largest component of the police department and comprises both patrol and community services operations.  Under the direction of a Deputy Chief, these service are provided from three different full-service facilities known as the Northwest, Central, and Scott Park District Stations, as well as numerous neighborhood sub-stations.

The Administrative Services Division, commanded by a Deputy Chief, provides assistance in the areas of Planning & Research, Fiscal Affairs, Training, and Personnel and Public Affairs. 

Investigative Services Division, commanded by a Deputy Chief, includes the Special Enforcement Bureau (Forfeiture Unit, Metro Drug Task Force, and Vice), and the Investigations Bureau (Person and Property Section, Scientific Investigations, Auto and Sex Squads, Domestic Violence Unit, and the Technical Crimes Section).”

In addition to the large divisions, the Toledo Police Department has a number of specialized units and functions such as the Crisis Intervention Team.  According to the Toledo Police Department, “The Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) is a national program of community partnerships involving law enforcement, the community, and mental healthcare agencies. Through quality training, officers are given tools to better assist in resolving crisis situations involving individuals and families affected by mental illness. In October of 2007, 16 officers and four communications operators graduated from the latest CIT class. The Toledo Police Department has found value in this program and currently has 99 trained officers and 30 communications operators who are CIT trained. A new CIT computer database was also established in 2007. This database provides officers with statistical data which makes more efficient use of their time, and provides information to enhance their personal safety and that of the consumers they are assisting.”
