Hamilton County Sheriff's Office

The Center for Social Justice met with Hamilton County Sheriff Charmaine McGuffey and her staff this month as a follow-up to information we received on their patrol practices in Hamilton County.  

  • Sheriff Deputies patrol 13 municipalities in Hamilton County, Ohio that do not have their own police department.  

  • The entire department is participating in ABLE (Active Bystander for Law Enforcement) training to prepare officers to successfully intervene to prevent harm to residents and create a culture that supports peer intervention.   

  • We recommended to the Sheriff that she publish data on patrol activities and their citizen complaint/compliment process on their website.   

  • CSJ will continue to meet with Sheriff McGuffey to discuss partnering on the ABLE training, community engagement in Lincoln Heights, and traffic stop and use of force data, and the citizen complaint process.
