At a time when the national news contains unfavorable police sentiment and continuous abuses of power, Chief Tim Lentz continues to direct the Covington Police Department in a forward and positive manner. The Department is involved with groups like the Boys & Girls Club, The Covington Food Bank, The Covington Business Association, The Rotary Club and many, many more. They offer community safety demonstrations in coordination with other departments, and programs promoting safety issues like seatbelt use. For the second year in a row, the CPD distributed money donated by anonymous donors during the holiday season, and officers also participated in the Feeding the Needy program by delivering meals for Christmas. Thanks to Chief Tim Lentz for cultivating a friendlier and more approachable department involved with strengthening the community in a greater way than their jobs prescribe.
