District 4 is responsible for patrolling and policing 10 neighborhoods: Mount Auburn, Corryville, Walnut Hills, Avondale, North Avondale, Paddock Hills, Bond Hill, Roselawn, Carthage, and Hartwell.

District personnel are divided into three uniform patrol shifts supervised by a lieutenant. Additionally, an Investigative Unit, which contains the Violent Crimes Squad and Neighborhood Officer Squad, is responsible for felony and most misdemeanor case investigations. A lieutenant supervises this unit.

The District 4 station has a large auditorium, which is used by the community for meetings and gatherings. This auditorium is also used by the Police Department for meetings and instructional conferences for our officers.

District 4 also includes one of the country's most respected hospitals, the Children's Hospital. People from all over the country, and indeed the world, bring their children here. Attached to the Children's Hospital is the Ronald McDonald House, a residential facility for the families of these children.

Also in this area are two additional hospitals, one being The University of Cincinnati Hospital, which serves as a major trauma center for the Tri-State area.

District 4 has implemented a pilot project with the Hamilton County Adult Probation Department, which is called the District Engagement for Neighborhood Dedication Supervision (DEFNDS). This project combines teams of Cincinnati Police officers and Probation officers to supervise criminal offenders, placed on community control, who reside in, or are found to frequent neighborhoods in District 4. The supervision of these offenders is necessary to make sure there is compliance with the rules and conditions of their probation. This supervision consists of home visits, employment visits, family contacts, confirmation of conduct in the community, determination of associations and executions of arrest warrants., is the primary communication tool for the Department.
