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 Police has grown with the City to an agency comprised of seventy-four 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 interpersonal relationships with our residents and business partners. These relationships are instrumental in making Hilliard a wonderful community in which to work and live.

The Hilliard Division of Police is comprised of two bureaus—Field Operations Bureau and Support Services Bureau.

The Bureau of Field Operations is comprised of accident investigations, the bicycle unit, patrol officers, police reserve, and school resource officers.

The Bureau of Investigation is comprised of community relations, the court liaison, a criminal investigation unit, the K-9 unit, police records, the property custodian, a special investigation unit, and training.
