United Way to Provide Lyft Rides to Vaccine Appointments: Get Out the Vax: Based on the success of a unique partnership between TriHealth and United Way of Greater Cincinnati called Ride United, six healthcare systems have come together with United Way to sponsor a transportation program using the ridesharing platform Lyft to support free rides to vaccine appointments for community residents. The Purpose Throughout the months of April and May, our community vaccination strategy is focusing on key Get Out the Vax tactics to increase the number of vaccinated community members.  Recognizing that transportation to appointments will be a challenge for many community members, this program will provide free rides through Lyft by distributing codes for round trip rides to appointments.  We have initially secured 1,000 codes for distribution. To access this program simply call dial 211 (United Way Transportation Solutions) United Way’s 211 call specialists will: ·        Determine the community member has a confirmed vaccine appointment ·        Ensure that the member has an unmet transportation need (and refer to COA or SORTA, if appropriate) ·        Assess whether the community member has the ability to use the Lyft ridesharing platform ·        Distribute a single use round trip code to be used the day of appointment United Way 211 (uwgc.org)

A Message from Chief Knauf

To All Taylor Mill Community Members,

The tragic events that have taken place recently in Dallas and Baton Rouge have given reason for police officers around the country to have a heighten sense of awareness while on duty, serving their community. Moreover, officers here at TMPD have, of course, also been affected by the aforementioned events. Our officers feel like their heads have to be on a swivel, not only having to be concerned with our number one priority, protecting our citizens, but also feeling the need to more intensely guard their own back due to the times we live in. With that being said, we here at TMPD have the pleasure of knowing that the Taylor Mill community overwhelmingly supports us and has our back! Evidence of this fact, are the cards/emails of support, pizza, food trays, bottled waters, cookies and cakes provided to us by residents and local business people.

I have had the pleasure of working for the police department for twenty-eight years, since 1988. During my tenure one thing has been a constant, the unwavering support and partnership that we regularly receive from you, our customer. On behalf of the entire police department, we appreciate your encouragement during these difficult times and thank you for reinforcing that you truly care for our wellbeing. I know I speak for the entire department that it is a pleasure to be a police officer in the City of Taylor Mill, where everyone is so supportive, appreciative and respectful of the police.

Steve Knauf
Chief of Police
