Deputy Chief of Police

The Village of Ottawa Hills (pop: 4,500 in northwest Ohio) is seeking an experienced law enforcement professional to serve as Deputy Chief of Police. Under the general guidance of the Chief of Police, the Deputy Chief is responsible for day-to-day management of all Police Department operations.

The Police Department is a 24-hour operation with 13 full-time employees. Together, they are dedicated to fair and consistent law enforcement and preserving peace and quality of life. The Department prides itself on providing a strong sense of security to residents.

To ensure Village residents continue to receive this level of service, the successful candidate will continuously review department operations to plan for future improvements; review and adopt progressive law enforcement strategies; ensure department members continue to receive superior training; and further strengthen already strong relationships with residents and the village school system.

Due to the Village’s size (about 2 square miles), the Police Department is very visible in the community.  Our officers know the names of most residents, and their children. Our size enables us to offer a high level of service beyond basic law enforcement, such as resident house checks and bicycle registrations. Our officers also are active in the buildings of the Ottawa Hills Local Schools (1,000 students), consistently one of the top ranked schools in Ohio.  

The Village and the Police Department are comprised of diverse populations. The successful candidate needs to have experience working with diverse populations and being a positive force in building inclusive communities.

The position’s budgeted pay range is $86,460 -$101,900, depending on qualifications. The Village is able to offer the successful candidate benefits that include health care, paid holiday time, sick leave accrual, sick leave bonus, and vacation accrual.


Minimum Qualifications:

·         Bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university.

·         Minimum of 10 years of law enforcement experience with at least five years of command or management-level experience.

·         OPOTA certification.


Preferred Qualifications:

·         Previous experience at the rank of police lieutenant, captain, deputy chief or chief.

·         A master’s degree or completion of advanced management training such as the Police Executive Leadership College (PELC), the Certified Law Enforcement Executive program (CLEE), the FBI National Academy, or Northwest School of Police Staff and Command.


The selected candidate will be subject to a comprehensive background investigation, psychological evaluation, and pre-employment medical testing. The first review of resumes begins October 18, 2019. The Deputy Chief of Police position will remain open until filled.
