Chief Rahe Completes Certified Law Enforcement Executive Program

Chief Dennis Rahe of Loveland PD recently completed the 14 month Certified Law Enforcement Executive (CLEE) program through the Ohio Association of Chiefs of Police Law Enforcement Foundation.


Participants were selected for the program by meeting set standards in experience, formal and continuing education, as well as professional-related experience.  For more than a year, they received instruction in modules concerned with ethics; change management; interpersonal skills; vision, mission and guiding principles; strategic planning; external environmental management; organizational risk management and resource allocation and budgeting.  Graduates of CLEE have demonstrated their mastery of these modules through written examinations and papers.


The Certified Law Enforcement Executive Program promotes professional development, benefiting not only the individual but also the agencies in which they work and practice, and their communities.  It is designed to elevate the standards of excellence for law enforcement executives.

LSFD Receives Ambulance Accreditation

The Loveland-Symmes Fire Department (LSFD) recently received accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Ambulance Services (CAAS) for its compliance with national standards of excellence.  LSFD is one of only 178 ambulance services in the country to successfully complete the voluntary review process, which included completion of a comprehensive application and on-site review by national experts in emergency medical services (EMS).  Since 1999, the Loveland-Symmes Fire Department has been continuously accredited from CAAS, being subjected to multiple re-accreditation processes.  With this achievement, the Loveland-Symmes Fire Department remains one of five ambulance services to be accredited in the state of Ohio.  This accomplishment is another way that the Loveland Symmes Fire Department can assure our community that the ambulance services they receive adhere to the highest standards of quality patient care.

Love is in the Air

As temperatures slowly warm, our local trees and plants prepare for their own annual rite of spring: pollination. As part of plants’ reproductive cycle, pollen is used for transferring male genetic material from the plant to the female reproductive structure of the plant. This allows fertilization to take place so the plant can continue to grow. Like all living organisms, seed plants have a single goal: to pass their genetic information on to the next generation.


Pollen is dispersed by insects and wind, with the latter increasing the amount of allergens in the air. Consequently, those who suffer from allergies may have more prevalent symptoms on windy days and those that immediately follow.


As a public service, the Southwest Ohio Air Quality Agency collects, counts, and reports pollen levels from mid-February to mid-November, depending upon the weather. The Agency details which plants and/or trees are producing the highest amount of pollen for that particular 24-hour collection period. Residents may find these daily pollen (and mold) counts on the Agency’s website at, as well as its Facebook and Twitter accounts.


Typically, pollen levels do not become problematic until April or May, when trees such as hickories, pine, oak, and walnuts are peaking in pollen production. Those who are symptomatic may find it helpful to track the pollen count along with their symptoms to provide an idea of which plants they may be allergic to. Residents should consult their health-care professional for advice on how to manage their symptoms.
