Administrative Services

The Administrative Services Section falls under the direct supervision of the Administrative Services Captain and consists of Parking Enforcement, the Records Section, and Research and Development. The primary function of this section is to ensure that all the basic needs of the Patrol Services Section and the Special Services Section are met in order to carry out their assignments.

Greene County Regional SWAT Team
The Xenia Police Division and the Greene County Sheriff's Department maintain a special response team. This team of full-time Officers and Deputies receives advanced and detailed training in special weapons and tactics for critical incidents. The members of the Swat Team continually train together to provide the capability for response to unusual situations, stakeouts, hostage situations, barricaded subjects, and high risk warrant service.

H.N.T. (Hostage Negotiations Team)
The H.N.T. consists of full-time officers specially trained in hostage negotiations. The negotiators are trained to communicate with any suspect in hostage situations. The H.N.T.'s goal is to end all situations with no loss of life or injury.

Parking Enforcement
Working under the general supervision and direction of the Police Division, Parking Enforcement manages the parking program, which includes issuing citations for handicapped parking, fire lane violations, parking meter enforcement, and all other parking violations. Parking Enforcement also supervises the volunteer program for the Xenia Police Division.

The Records Unit has the responsibility of maintaining the files and records of police activity in the area of crimes, traffic accidents, and enforcement services. They also microfilm records and provide statistics and data to the Administrative Section for the varied weekly, monthly and annual reports as required by the city, state, and federal agencies.

Research & Development
Our Research and Development Unit develops operational alternatives and plans for the future progress of the Xenia Police Division. Among the Unit's responsibilities are developing short- and long-range operational plans; analyzing police operations and statistics in conjunction with the Special Services and Patrol Services; conducting research on specific issues as assigned; and monitoring Division operations to ensure they remain in compliance with accreditation standards.
