Meet Chief Biehl 
 
 


Richard S. Biehl joined the Dayton Police Department as Director and Chief on January 28, 2008.

He was selected as Dayton's police chief following a broad-based community evaluation process that included input from  representatives from Dayton’s seven Priority Boards, the business community, criminal justice agencies, and the community at large.

Chief Biehl has more than 35 years of experience in law enforcement work. He served on the Cincinnati Police Department from 1980 to 2004 in positions including Officer, Sergeant, Lieutenant, Captain, and ultimately Assistant Police Chief.

From February of 2004 until his appointment as Dayton's chief, Biehl served as Executive Director of Cincinnati’s Community Police Partnering Center. In this capacity, he facilitated engaging community stakeholders through the Community Problem Oriented Policing (CPOP) program, with a goal of improving neighborhood safety and community-police relations.

Chief Biehl can be reached at richard.biehl@daytonohio.gov or by telephone at (937) 333-1080.
