Residents looking back on changes to the Loveland Police Department since the May 2016 hiring of Chief Robert Ticer will find new faces among its staff, officers carrying new gadgets and a different system for tracking reports of crime and traffic accidents.
A departmental switch made directly by Ticer upon his arrival was to its slogan, which is now the phrase, “Save lives. Fight crime. Survive.”
A changing of the guard among the department’s top brass as well as the additions of initiatives to fight the opioid epidemic and to deter mental illness have also come this year under Ticer’s leadership.
