The Loveland Police Department (LPD) has hired a new police officer, Brandon Asbury. Asbury was sworn into office at the March 8 Loveland City Council meeting.
Asbury began his career in 2012 at the Adams County Sherriff’s Office as a dispatcher and corrections officer. He graduated from the police academy in 2013 and was promoted to the road patrol division. He quickly became involved in criminal patrol interdiction, the narcotics unit, and field training. Asbury also managed a traffic safety grant through the Ohio Traffic Safety Office.
In June 2018, Asbury moved to the Brown County Sherriff’s Office, where he was promoted to the Brown County Drug and Major Crimes Task Force as an undercover agent. During his time with the Task Force, he worked mid- to high-level drug trafficking operations on the state and federal level and investigated overdose deaths.
