MIAMI TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WDTN) - Today is the last day on the job for Miami Township Police Chief John Krug.
Krug is retiring after 17 years on the force.
"After much deliberation and consultation, I have decided it is now time for me to turn over leadership of the Miami Township Police Department to someone else so that the department may continue to prosper and move toward an accredited status," Krug said in his letter of resignation delivered may 30. "As I turn the reins over, I am confident that the great men and women of the police department will continue to provide quality service to the Miami Township community."
Krug said his intent was to retire by July 31 in order to not be impacted by pension reform.
Miami Township named Ronald Hess as its interim police chief.
Hess most recently worked as the Miamisburg municipal court bailiff. He retired from the Miamisburg Police Department in 2012 holding the rank of captain.
"Mr. Hess has a distinguished career in law enforcement and we believe he will be a great leader for our community," said Trustee President Mike Nolan. "His 36 years of law enforcement leadership experience shows he is more than qualified and prepared to lead our department."
Gordon Gee is returning to West Virginia University as interim president, five months after controversial remarks led to his retirement as president at Ohio State University.
