Lookout, Oakley, Madisonville, Kennedy Heights, Pleasant Ridge, East End, Columbia-Tusculum, Linwood, Mt. Washington and California are the neighborhoods that comprise District Two.
District Two enjoys a very strong and positive relationship with members of community councils. Through these cooperative relationships, several neighborhoods (Lunken Airport, Madisonville, Mt. Washington, Oakley, Kennedy Heights, and Evanston) have active "Citizens on Patrol" groups. Citizens on Patrol members patrol their own neighborhoods reporting crime and health conditions to the police and other responsible agencies. Citizens on Patrol groups contribute significantly to displacing drug dealers. District Two’s Citizens on Patrol members are a valuable asset to their community and the police department.
123 sworn officers and civilian personnel are assigned to District Two. Police Officers assigned to uniform patrol are generally divided into three eight-hour shifts, which are commanded by a police lieutenant. The first shift has working hours which range between 0600 through 1500 hours. The second shift hours range from 1300 through 2300 hours. The third shift hours range from 2100 through 0700 hours.
District Two has an Investigative Unit, which is commanded by a police lieutenant. The Investigative Unit is responsible for processing crime scenes for evidence. They provide training to uniform officers and assist in covert operations on a district level. A warrant officer is assigned the task of processing and serving numerous criminal misdemeanor warrants.
