PD Chief to Retire Oct. 18 PDF E-mail

Richard Barnhart Chief websiteAfter working for the city for more than 31 years, West Carrollton Police Chief Rick Barnhart will retire on Friday, Oct. 18.

A public reception will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 18, in the West Carrollton Police Department Training Room, in the Civic Center, 300 E. Central Ave.

Barnhart joined the department in 1982 as a patrol officer, and served in that role for over 5 years. He was promoted to sergeant in 1987, and then to deputy chief in 1995. In 2000, he was appointed to serve as the police chief.

The size of the department staff is nearly the same as it was in the 1990s, however, technology has dramatically changed the department during his career, he said. “We’ve gone from writing ledgers in the dispatch center to a computer-aided dispatch. In the road room where we take reports, we’ve gone from typewriters to computers; and in the cruisers, we’ve added video recording devices and computers,” he said.

 In 2007, Barnhart oversaw the renovations and expansions to the 5,000 square foot addition to the police department at the Civic Center.

West Carrollton was recognized for its 24th year of participation in the Tree City USA program this April. By maintaining the Tree City USA program, the city recognizes the impact that trees have on communities by filtering the air, reducing heat to homes and buildings, providing a habitat for wildlife, and increasing property values.
