Chief Richard S. Biehl

Chief Biehl served nearly 25 years in the Cincinnati Police Department in positions including Officer, Sergeant, Lieutenant, Captain, and ultimately Assistant Police Chief for six years. He commanded both the Investigations Bureau and the Administration Bureau. In February, 2004, he was appointed as the first Executive Director of the Community Police Partnering Center, a private nonprofit organization created in the aftermath of the civil unrest of 2001 and that worked in partnership with the Cincinnati Police Department to train community stakeholders in problem solving methodologies to address community crime disorder problems. Chief Biehl has been a true civil rights champion, particularly in relation to his minority and immigrant friendly policing policies and practices. Community and business members agree that his focus on community policing policies has resulted in greater trust between law enforcement officers and the community as a whole.
