Cameras installed at police department

Would-be criminals beware, the Union Township Police Department is more secure than ever.

New security cameras that will cover the rear entrance to the police department and the front entrance to the service department will go online soon.

The idea for the cameras was brought forward by local resident Bill Shannon. The idea was presented after the January shooting at the Mt. Orab Police Department in which Mt. Orab resident George Ruby was killed after he shot an officer in the back.
