The Erlanger Police Department is a full-time police agency headed by Chief Tony Wilson.

Customer service is what we provide and it is our goal to provide the best customer service possible. We do this by assigning a team of officers to each neighborhood of the cities – districts. This team is responsible for problem solving in their assigned neighborhood. Crescent Springs has been designated as District 2.
Lt. Mike Jansing is the District Commander, assisted by Sgt. Mike Leming and Sgt. Matt Kremer. Please contact one of them with any problem you may have and they will assist in any way they can.
