Public Safety

A picture or video on a smart phone would be very useful to an officer investigating suspicious or suspected criminal activity.

Law Enforcement and Police Protection:  Neighborhood Security and Asset Protection officers (off-duty LMPD officers) are employed by Bellemeade ONLY for a certain numbers of hours each month to augment the services provided by Louisville Jefferson County Metropolitan Government.  They are not on-call for Bellemeade.  The City of Bellemeade is under the law enforcement jurisdiction of Louisville Metro Police Department (LMPD).  We are served by LMPD Division 8, 200 Juneau Drive, 40243; phone 503-574-2258, FAX 502-245-1249.  911 – Please immediately report all suspicious behavior and suspected or known criminal activity to Louisville Metro Police Department by calling 911.  You can call 502-574-2111 Option 5 with as much detail as you can provide to file a delayed report.

Public Safety for Bellemeade is overseen by Commissioner James Martin.

Residents serve on the Bellemeade Public Safety Committee to advise the Bellemeade Public Safety Commissioner and operate Bellemeade Neighborhood Watch.  Any resident interested in serving on the on the committee, please email either Commissioner Martin or Bellemeade city clerk.

UPDATE:  NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH IS NON-FUNCTIONAL DUE TO ABSENCE OF RESIDENT SUPPORT AND BECAUSE OF THE INCREASED USE OF SOCIAL MEDIA> 

Neighborhood watch is simply neighbors helping neighbors stay safe by being the “eyes and ears” of the police department.  It can be as organized or loosely run as residents desire.  LMPD 8th Division provides a Neighborhood Watch Resource Officer at our request. However, community use of this asset has fallen off due to lack of community participation in Neighborhood Watch.  At this time, your participation is greatly needed.

SNOW REMOVAL POLICY:  Bellemeade has a contract for Bellemeade streets to be plowed when accumulation is in excess of three inches with other factors considered such as an accumulation of ice under the snow.  In the latter case, removal of the snow down to the ice will make the street even more hazardous.  North Chadwick Road, Wood Road, and Whipps Mill Roads are not maintained by Bellemeade.  They are maintained by Metro or Lyndon.  The Public Safety Commissioner and the Public Works Commissioner jointly recommend if the plows need to be called in and will use their judgement to determine when hazardous or special circumstances exist as part of their recommendation.
