Chief Douglas Francis

On behalf of the men and women of the Hilliard Division of Police, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our official website. The Department was formed in 1957 as a "Special Police" force made up of 20 volunteers. In 1960, the first two full-time police officers were hired. Since that time, The Hilliard Division of has grown with the City to an agency comprised of sixty-six individuals who proudly serve the residents, businesses and visitors of the City of Hilliard and Norwich Township. 

Like many other agencies in Franklin County, we have grown over the last ten years due to an ever-increasing and diverse population. We have a strong sense of community pride and strive to maintain close inter-personal relationships with our residents and business partners. These relationships are instrumental in making Hilliard a wonderful community in which to work and live.

As our Mission states, "The employees of the Hilliard Division of Police are committed to serve the Hilliard Community and to enhance the quality of life by working cooperatively with the public to prevent crime, preserve peace, enforce the law with respect to the constitutional rights of all citizens, reduce fear and provide a safe community environment."

This commitment has led to our adopting a Community Oriented philosophy and embracing an approach to develop community partnerships to help solve community problems and to improve those quality of life issues that are important to us all.  Our staff is extremely proud of our rich tradition, and we are committed to public service and ensuring the safety of all.

On behalf of the City of Hilliard, thank you for your interest in our Division of Police. We have worked to make our site user-friendly and provide the public with needed information. Please feel free to e-mail our agency with any suggestions. Welcome and enjoy our site.
