Loveland police officers occasionally are too aggressive with their questioning of Loveland homeowners. Walking your dog on a public sidewalk created an unusual suspicion for a Loveland officer who questioned the resident, do you live in this neighborhood??

Is their a correlation between police power and a resident walking his dog?? Another excellent example is a Loveland officer executing "radar" from his patrol car while parked in a resident's private driveway!! Loveland police officers need education regarding acceptable behavior while performing their duties and responsibilities of protecting the public!!!!!!!!

I am a police officer from another town, but I have family in Loveland that I visit frequently, I have noticed they are a bit aggressive and over bearing. As for the RADAR issue, if the owner/occupant allows them to do so, then there is nothing wrong with that. Speeding on residential streets is a issue, and seeing how most of Loveland is residential streets, its the primary speeding issue, and some places there is no where else to park. Try parking on Mohican Dr or something, there would be no where effective to sit on the road, as RADAR only works at certain angles and distances. The best line of defense is to drive no faster than the speed limit, you can drive less if you want to.

Jerry - If you are truely a police officer from another town then you should know that taking an entire organization and marking them "aggressive and over bearing" shows a lack of intelligence and common sense on your part. Your experience should prove to you that not every person should be judged by the actions of their peers and this is the same for police officers. You may have had a bad experience with one of the Loveland police officers but is it fair to judge the entire department based on that experience? Have you forgotten that police officers are generally authoritative by nature and this measure of control can often be interpreted in a negative light by those who are not criminal in nature? A police officer's biggest fault is that he or she automatically assumes the worst of each person, that is how they find evidence, solve problems and more importantly...stay alive! Unfortunately, the demands of the job may not always allow the police officer to explain every action and detail to someone who feels they may have been wronged.

Law enforcement is difficult enough without being undermined from within. If you have a specific complaint, please take measures to resolve that complaint without substantiating the ranting and irritation of Mr. Randall. Simply asking someone, "Do you live in this neighborhood?" doesn't seem "aggressive and over bearing" in the least. How do you know if this person was a "Loveland homeowner" unless you ask?

It doesn't matter if the person is a homeowner or if the person even lives in Loveland. If I took my dog with me to another city and needed to walk it, why would it be ok for an officer to stop me and ask if I live in their district? I think you've completely missed the point of the post. Also, most Loveland officers are overbearing and too excitable while on duty.

I LIVE IN THE LOVELAND AREA AND I ALSO FIND THAT A NUMBER OF THESE YOUNG OFFICERS ARE BREAKING LAWS AND ARE VERY AROGENT. I would hope that most people are smart enough to know that some cops do break laws. And as far as I am concerned to many on the Loveland police force and that includes your city hall.

gee, extremely ironic-especially considering many of the loveland residents choose to bicycle thru goshen!
I don't know how many times I've been driving behind these self-abosorbed aholes who apparently feel that it's OK to ignore traffic laws, common courtesy, etc.
if any loveland cop stops me be sure that I will ask about the "bikers" in our community, and if I should return reciprocal "courtesy"!
