  One of Cincinnati’'s oldest neighborhoods, Price Hill, was once praised as the city'’s most popular and distinctive suburb. Commonly divided into East Price Hill, West Price Hill, and Lower Price Hill, the area covers over 6 square miles. Like many neighborhoods, Price Hill has experienced its ups and downs, but its residents are proactive in targeting problems and working together to make their community a better place to live.

Cincinnati Police didn't have too far to go to begin round one of a crackdown targeting gang members allegedly dealing drugs and guns in East Price Hill.

The SWAT team executed a search warrant at 3216 Warsaw, diagonal from District Three Police Headquarters, where two shootings happened last weekend. That was just the beginning.

By 2:00 Tuesday police say they had arrested 14 of the 29 people wanted.  One involved a car chase into Kentucky.

Cincinnati officials have announced that East Price Hill and Walnut Hills have been selected for this year’s Neighborhood Enhancement Program.  

The two areas were selected based on a number of factors.  Those include: building code violations, vacant buildings, disorder and drug calls for police service and drug arrests, as well as graffiti, junk cars, litter and weeds.
