Community Problem-Oriented Policing (CPOP)

Mission Statement

Northside CPOP is a group of dedicated residents who have come together to improve the quality of life for people who live and work in our neighborhood.

Crime Prevention Monthly

Drug Treatment - Recovery Health Access Center

Community Problem Oriented Policing (CPOP) teams, composed of community members, staff from the Community Police Partnering Center, and District Police, are formed to address crime and disorder in Cincinnati’s neighborhoods.

Successful teams that are working to reduce drug sales and drug use in their neighborhoods realize that a key to success involves not only relying on Police to arrest dealers.  Rather, they must develop a strategy to link those who are buying drugs with treatment services.  One of the best ways to help people find recovery is to encourage them to contact the Recovery Health Access Center (RHAC).

In Hamilton County, RHAC is a new resource that is designed to facilitate access to alcohol and/or drug abuse services.  It also provides information about treatment resources for both individuals and families who are experiencing problems relating to drug or alcohol use.  All services within the RHAC program can be accessed by a single telephone number, 513–281–RHAC (7422).  RHAC will operate 24 hours a day, seven days per week, and will be located at the Alcoholism Council’s offices at 2828 Vernon Place in Cincinnati.

What are some strategies that you can use to distribute this phone number and resource in your neighborhood?

Current Project

Our current project is to restore the 4200 block of Fergus Street so that it is an asset for Northside - a desirable part of the neighborhood for homeowners, tenants and responsible investors.

What have we done so far?

The Northside CPOP team has researched each property on the 4200 block: crime stats; code violations; complaints; evictions; foreclosures; etc.  We have surveyed owner-occupants and tenants about their specific concerns.  We are now seeking similar input from non-resident property-owners and investors.

What are our plans?

With this information in hand, we will bring together resources from various city departments to address the issues most important to the residents of Fergus.


Northside CPOP is currently not meeting. Please contact those listed below for further information as efforts continue, even in trhe absence of meetings.
