The Miamisburg Police Department, headquartered in the Civic Center, features a highly trained staff of law enforcement professionals. It employs 41 full-time officers, eight full-time communications officers, several auxiliary officers and civilian staff. The force includes a detective division, a D.A.R.E. officer and a school resource officer.
In 2004, the Department demonstrated its ongoing commitment to a community-based philosophy of policing by developing the Downtown/Citizens Police Initiative (DCPI). This Ohio grant-funded program featured creation of a patrol position dedicated solely to the City's historic downtown district, which is the subject of revitalization efforts. Required locally matching funds to secure the state grant were donated by the Spring Fling Committee in 2004 and by the Fraternal Order of Eagles in 2005. Additional grant funding from the state has continued to support the program from 2006 - 08.

The DCPI position is funded in part by the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant from the states Office of Criminal Justice Services. The assigned officer is dedicated solely to the downtown district, serving as liaison to the businesses and residents there. There is a satellite office location for the DCPI officer in a storefront at 43 S. Main Street.
