K-9 A Hero!

September 12, 2016



 Zorro’s special talents made a critical difference in a September 2015 incident. Officers were called to a traffic crash, but before they arrived, an intoxicated person ran from the scene on foot. The K-9 was able to track the person to a wooded area, where he was found unconscious. Officers removed him, and he received medical treatment.

Zorro’s handler, Officer Harlow, said she does not believe they would have located the person without the K-9, because of the dense wooded area in which he was hidden.





On Wednesday, June 10th, Zorro the newest member of the police department was sworn in at the Township Trustees Meeting.  Dr. Jason Thorn from the Dixie Veterinary Clinic presented Police Chief Cresie with a check for $1000 to buy a bullet and stab resistant vest for Zorro.  Dr. Thorn and his staff has been wonderful supporters of the police department and the canine program, and he raised the money for the vest through donations from the community.  We are very appreciative of all the support for Zorro and the police department.

Camp Fire Rules

Open burning such as camp fires are allowed in Butler Township for recreational purposes only, including the cooking of food, warmth or pleasure. Such fires are governed by the Ohio Fire Code, and no permit is needed. However, there are a few common-sense rules that must be followed. You can find these rules on the Fire Department Tab.

Bonfires require a permit, and all other burning is considered illegal by the Regional Air Pollution Control Agency. Please contact the Fire Department at 890-2491 for more information.

Replace Smoke Alarms Every 10 Years

April 13, 2016

Did you know that over time, smoke alarms wear out? In fact, manufacturers recommend replacing them at least every 10 years from the manufacture date.

To emphasize that fact, this year’s Fire Prevention Week theme was “Don’t Wait – Check the Date!”

If you need assistance with changing batteries, or help replacing your smoke alarm, please contact the Fire Department at 890-2491. If you provide the battery or smoke alarm, they will set an appointment and assist you with changing these items.

Smoke alarm batteries should be replaced every six months. A good time to change your smoke alarm batteries is when we change our clocks. This year, we’ll “fall back” November 6.
