Middletown Division of Police

From Chief Rodney Muterspaw:

Hello Middletown,

You probably have seen an increase in law enforcement in the Middletown gateway areas with MPD, Butler County Sheriff’s Office and Ohio State Patrol. We know social media has been blowing up about it and we are getting a lot of questions about it, so we wanted to address it for you, our community.

The City Manager and Public Safety Team (Fire and Police) have been working hard with our community to fight the nationwide heroin epidemic, which directly affects Middletown, among other cities. We are in the pipeline between two major cities so we have to try different tactics than most cities. We are a part of the Heroin Summit at the Atrium (now in stage 13), which focuses on treatment, post treatment, youth activities and other important functions to combat heroin from an educational standpoint. Research it. This Heroin Summit, is setting some standards throughout Ohio as an innovative community based problem solving team. It isn't just a bunch of people in suits sitting around talking, it is serious work in progress. See the heroin reduction chart below. We have seen a good decrease in this. It is a mixture of everything – stricter enforcement, federal drug indictments, the Heroin Summit advancement, community support and teamwork. Great results!

We hope this helps with your questions. We are not going to sit and allow drug dealers to drive through Middletown to sell their product. You will continue to see a large police presence in town for periods of time. We are adding two more K9’s this summer. Know that we are doing this to continue to take our city back. There are too many good things going on (new schools, new businesses, city events, east end development, concerts downtown, fireworks) to not do everything we can to continue improvement. I am sure some of you have complaints on dealers and feel frustrated. Understood! But get us what you can and we will do our best. I can't tell you how many cases we have solved based on an original complaint that came through on here. We took off record levels of fentanyl out of here in 2017 – more to come.

Another reason we have OSP and BCSO in the city so much is to help us with our truck problem. Overweight vehicles are killing us on non-truck routes. We hear your complaints and we really are trying to fix this. We have personally asked outside agencies to help us with this problem. Ohio is known for potholes. The additional weight of these vehicles help cause these massive potholes, which is frustrating for all of us. I have hit them in my own car also. Potholes occur when snow and ice melt as part of freeze-thaw cycles. The water then drains beneath the pavement through cracks caused by the wear and tear of traffic. As the temperatures freeze, the water becomes ice and expands below the pavement, forcing the pavement to rise. As the weight of traffic continues to pound on this raised section a hole starts to occur under the surface and the pavement cracks, forming a pothole. People that ignore the laws on vehicle weight are simply being selfish and it causes more damage to our city streets.

There is an online form to report a pothole through the city. The link is: www.cityofmiddletown.org/FormCenter/Public-Works-10/Pothole-Patrol-52

Albert Einstein once said the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. We have and are changing the way we fight these battles. Everyone is not going to be happy with these efforts and methods, some will get tickets and arrests, but bear with us as we focus on these operations. We are looking at every method possible to win this fight - some may not like it, but most will.

Have a great week!

Hope Andy Miller is ok!

Stephanie Ann how about this?

I was there! 😁 Wasn't excepting Guyer to hit a homer #Windians

The bats are warming up!!..Who will hit the next one???

Is it just me or are the white uniforms the best looking?

Great game guys!

Brantley stay healthy.

GO TRIBE !!!

can't wait to see the Indians beat the Cubbies next mo in Chitown!

Last evening we received a video of a potential threat at Middletown High School for today. Within an hour MCSD administration and staff were meeting here with detectives to review and identify.

By 10:30 p.m. those in the video were found by our officers and detained for investigation. The threat is over and more details will follow.

Thank you to Middletown City Schools for jumping on this immediately and working with us right away to get the problem solved. We take any threat against the schools seriously and will continue to monitor this situation with MCSD.

This is so sad. I certainly hope these 3 students are made to understand what they did won’t be tolerated & to under cover what made them do this. Some counseling needs to occur plus including family in this!

It's scary to know that my son knew these kids and I just met them myself they looked like good kids. This situation couldn't turned out into a much tragic one had sometime reported them and cops showed up not knowing those were bb guns 3 children could've lost their lives.

There should be present at the elementary school as well. When first grades child is be slammed by another student and all he gets is five minutes of his recess taken away. The principal is doing nothing. Next time the police will be called there.

I agree with sending more police officers rather than arming teachers. Two different roles and sets of responsibilities for keeping kids safe.

Cleveland Indians

Can confirm winning feels pretty good. ...

 

Comment on Facebook

And when the browns start the draft tonight with picking Barkley #1, it'll be a trifecta of winning.

Don't look now, but Trevor Bauer is quickly becoming one of the top pitchers in the league!

I know the circumstances are WAY different this time around... but still... it felt REALLY good to beat the Cubs in Cleveland!!

What a night for Cleveland. LeBron makes 2 of the greatest plays at the end of the game and the tribe wins.

Miller looks like a pulled or strained hammy. All be missing Brian Shaw right about now

Does this mean we all can go rub it in the Cubs faces on their Facebook page like they do?

was that a mario coin sound effect after the HRs? if so, that's amazing.

Gotta love EE homerun trot!!

Guy with a broken neck. Manning: "That's gonna be an E right there."

Love getting the W. Still hope the hitting comes around for everyone. Homers are great, but getting the smaller hits can produce runs, too.

Tito said after the game that Miller was getting an MRI tomorrow but it didnt seem serious

Finally,some run support for Bauer!...now let's see some for Kluber!

Cleveland Indians wins, and LeBron Cluch Wins.. Excellent 💪💪

Bauer pitching a gem against a Cubs lineup that can be tough, as we saw on Tuesday night. Tomlin has got to go somewhere -- either in the bullpen or to another team. Cookie, Bauer, Kluber, and Clev are machines. One more solid starter and an alarm clock for the bats away from being a major force.

Nick Kline, here is a recap in case you missed it. I hope you die.

Feels good for everyone minus the guy that about near broke his neck going for a foul ball.

Indians Win, Cavaliers Win! What a great day for our city

I noticed Margie Carroll-Venetico isn't posting comments on this page tonight. Her and her W flag are no where to be seen.

For the weather conditions our boys rocked it tonight! I just hope Miller is ok! XOXOXO to him. ⚾❤⚾❤⚾

Go Tribe...Go Cavs...it's Cleveland's Night...& tomorrow The Browns get first pick in NFL Draft...GO TEAMS!!!

Cool..Both Cleveland Teams Won❣❣

Bauer said the F word Bauer said the F word! I love when he gets riled up!

Trim the fat and only use Tom Hamilton calling the game

Good to see the bats woke up & Bauer was solid. What’s up with Miller? Who isn’t on the DL? lol

Way to go Indians both our teams took wins !!!!

Everyone has an off night. It’s a long season and there are bound to be disappointing games. Go Tribe.

I was for Tomlin as the 5 coming in because he's usually a consistent .500 pitcher with a 4 something era. But I can admit when I'm wrong his fastball is garbage it's literally batting practice speed for these hitters. Salazar, Merritt at this point I don't care just not him.

And Jay Bruce goes 3-5 with 2 homers for the Mets last night ....geez !! Should have signed him !!

We are playing the Cubs, not TB

Great another cubs drumming of us!!

Be tough Trevor! Better not give up more than 2 runs. We'll be lucky to score 2. Too many holes in our offense. Lindor, Kip, EE....Lindor has forgotten patience.

Let’s hope the bats come alive tonight. Time to sit Kipnis. There’s got to be another infielder waiting in the wings that can at least bat .250 right?

The rotation of Kluber, Carrasco, Bauer and Clevinger are tops in the league. Tomlin must go. He's the weak link in the rotation. The Tribe needs to trade him, release him or just take him to a pawn shop.

That pitching line up looked pretty similar to spring training game. Played just as bad too. Rough nite last night, let's #GoTribe #RallyTogether

Sorry, Cubs, batting practice is over.

Hope Bauer is pumped tonight. As much as I like Tomlin, I think it is time to get a new starter and let Tomlin relief.

Let’s redeem ourselves boys! Get them bats going too.

Ready for a Bauer outage tonight!!! GO TRIBE!!!

Let's erase last night from our memories and win tonight.

Not Tomlin means we have a good chance!

Let's talk about that other pitcher for a minute lol

Bauer's just going to see if he can do any worse then Tomlin. So much for getting revenge on the team that stole our Series win. Sad.

How bout some hitting? Can we maybe get like 6 or 7 runs. Or maybe if there's a guy on 2nd with less than 2 outs driving him in, doesn't even have to be a home run.

If the,bats,aren't going to be effective tonight I'd rather have another rainout. Hopefully one bad day won't snowball into a losing streak.

Hopefully they’ll score you enough runs home slice. Can’t win a game when you can’t score more runs than them. Dam, that was simple.

Go Trevor and the TRIBE!

Hopefully we score some runs for him .

Please don’t over think Bauer. Trust your stuff!!! And offense, give him some run support!

He has the advantage of not being named Josh ;)

And our fifth one is almost at 10 now.....

Flowering Dogwoods are a native small deciduous tree that can grow in full sun to partial shade. It grows 15-30’ tall and has a somewhat flat-topped growth habit. They are a great understory or specimen tree. They produce a fruit after flowering that is edible and have excellent fall color. You can find many dogwoods around Zoo grounds.

We have one bad game and you all freak out. Its still April and we are in first place and the only team in the central over 500. Take a deep breath you guys.

A handful of runs away from being dead last in runs scored in all of baseball. Shout out to the Dolans for letting Santana and Bruce walk!

Salazar needs to heal up so we can move Tomlin to the bullpen already. 80% Salazar is better than 100% Tomlin.

All bs aside. If my Cubbies can't do it, I would LOVE to see the Tribe win it all! Hang in there fans. Get your offense going and you will be making another push for the W.S. no doubt.

Another great outing by Grandpa Tomlin. I swear, if Indians brass could have a healthy Randy Johnson or Tomlin, they would select Tomlin. Mark my words, he'll have a great game next game, but go back to normal crappy ways. Merritt or Salazar will take Tomlin's place I hope. Tomlin is easiest pitcher I'm league to hit. Great character guy, buy that doesn't get you wins.

Shoot, glad there is some good news. I know this is not a popular opinion, but I have no faith in Tito and I wish the options at manager weren't so scarce and uproven in the MLB at this time. At the very least, the front office needs to take Tito to task and fire VanBurkLeo! THIS CAN't HAPPEN!

Tomlin has to go !!! Its nearly a loss every time out for him! The weak link in the rotation. Bullpen is not the same in years past either. The loss of Smith and Shaw is being felt. A trade needs to happen for bullpen and offensive help.

Finally signed Melky he should be good upgrade over about 3 of current out fielders. Sure glad McAllister is free agent at years end. I have seen enough of his messes. Bel isle needs to go also!

I think Tomlinson, Mac and the lady pitcher should all be on a short rope. Only Ramirez is hitting the rest of the team gets a hit every 3rd day. They have the talent but right now they are not showing it.

Good news, at least 5 days before Tomlin gives up more homers...

Love this team win or lose....Besides, a loss for every three or four wins is still pretty darn good!!!! Off nights happen especially in April in Cleveland! Let's get 'em tomorrow then forget about 'em and move on...GO TRIBE!!!!!😘

Why is Tomlin still on the team? Guy is straight trash. I’d say Salazar but he’s so mentally fragile he got hurt again watching Tomlin pitch. And looks like our hitting was top notch again. When we gonna get a real hitting coach?

No problem, it is only 1 game. We are still in 1st place in our division. The goal is to stay in 1st and make the playoffs. Then look out!!!

Go Tribe. Hitting will come around. Pitching and defense have been mostly outstanding this year. Hang in there boys. Keep your head up and keep working hard. It will come together soon.

Not pretty but lets get them tommorrow. Once our bats warm up we will be okay, hoping like the weather the warming comes soon

Everyone is swing for the fences. Base hits boys. And if Kip is gonna watch 2 strikes go by and then swing at one in the dugout the rest of the season I’ll keep my money and stay home

Tribe better wake up. Scoring 1-2 runs a game and not hitting will soon lead to a long season. Tomlin on the other hand is another story.

Alright, three pitchers had a rough outing. That's still only one loss. Maybe it's a good thing, they can watch what happened and make adjustments.

Why do they even let T-Ball Tommy start anymore it's like watching the same bad movie over and over gezzzzz !

There are a couple of starters in Columbus with decent enough ERA's that might warrant consideration to try as 5th starters. Plutko in particular has a respectable walk to strikeout ratio. It might be worth a shot.

Tomlin is trash . I don’t ever say negative things about my team but he’s bad. I knew him and McAllister would be suspect but this is ridiculous. Send him back to the minor leagues I beg you .

That game was lethargic/complacent. It was nice to watch a game that had some hitting in it though. I hate to say it but thanks for hitting the ball Cubs. (Actually, I knew this would happen) these boys think they’re 420’ hitters. More like 420’ holes in their swings.

The Indians definitely need to look high and low for to improve the hitting! They're always all or nothing at bats!

The Indians are going to have to accept soon that none of their bullpen pitchers are capable of stepping into Shaw's role, even by committee. OTOH, the Little Sisters of the Poor could win the AL Central, so what's the motivation for doing anything about it?

The team that always makes moves and listens to their fans just stomped you again cuz we insist on dumpster diving every year and letting talent walk.
