CINCINNATI — Authorities released a public appeal Friday evening to have residents requesting police assistance to meet the responding officers outside of their homes when possible.
The statement said that dispatchers will request callers for emergency services leave the residences to meet emergency personnel as well.
Police said they know it won't always be possible to meet out of doors but they feel in most cases their request can be met.
@CincyPD is requesting that residents needing the assistance of our officer meet the officers outside of their location when possible.
