HUBBARD TOWNSHIP — After a career of serving the Hubbard Township community for 29 years, police Chief Greg Tarr will step down Friday.
Tarr, 51, who started with the police department part time in 1993, will be retiring, having served as the chief since 2020.
“For me, having the opportunity to serve the residents of Hubbard Township as part of my career is what I will remember. It was a great community. I met a lot of people and made a lot of friends,” said Tarr, who grew up in the township.
He worked part time for two years until a federal Community Oriented Policing Services grant obtained by the township allowed him to become full time making $10 per hour.
Over the years, Tarr moved up the ranks and eventually became a sergeant in 2014 and chief in 2020 after the retirement of Todd Coonce.
Tarr said his proudest accomplishment as chief has been getting the police staff and township trustees on track after several challenging financial years.
