Loveland Officer Receives Award
Loveland Police Officer Kevin Corbett was honored recently at the 29th Annual Police Appreciation Banquet. The banquet and awards are sponsored by the Clermont County Citizens Law Enforcement Association.
Officer Corbett has been with the Police Division since 1999. From 2008 until January of 2012 Officer Corbett served as the Police Division's full time Detective. He was named Criminal Investigator of the Year for his work as Detective in 2011.
In his time as Detective, Kevin has worked diligently to solve cases, help fellow officers and to establish an excellent relationship and reputation with other agencies and the Prosecutor's offices of the three counties in which Loveland resides. Loveland PD is fortunate to have one full time investigator. In 2011, Detective Kevin Corbett was assigned that role. He had ninety-six cases assigned to him that year. Many of the cases Kevin assigned to himself in order to flee up the road officers for other duties. While many of those cases resulted in closure without arrest or prosecution, they still had to be investigated until leads were exhausted. Detective Corbett willingly took on those extra cases and followed through until they could be properly closed.
In 2011, a suspect entered the Chase Bank located at 513 Loveland Madeira Road and presented a note to the teller demanding cash. During the robbery, the suspect threatened to kill the teller with a gun that he had if she activated the silent alarm. As officers began to canvas the area, Detective Corbett contacted BCI for assistance. Detective Corbett retrieved surveillance photos and disseminated them to road officers who were instrumental in developing a suspect. Detective Corbett recognized the suspect from a previous case involving a burglary offense in Clermont County. Detective Corbett also knew the suspect was working as a confidential informant with another agency. Detective Corbett created a photo line-up and after a positive ID obtained an arrest warrant for the suspect for aggravated robbery. The suspect confessed to the crime. Kevin obtained a search warrant for the suspects residence and recovered additional evidence. The arrest was the result of Detective Corbett taking the lead, gathering information, disseminating information and working cooperatively with officers and other jurisdictions to get an arrest warrant and track down this dangerous suspect.
Detective Corbett began a detailed investigation into a theft from an 81 year old victim. At the conclusion of his investigation, Detective Corbett had obtained enough evidence to charge the suspect with stealing $80,000 from this elderly victim, He obtained a confession and ultimately a conviction against one a predator which preyed on the elderly.
Congratulations Officer Corbett.
