City of Harrison Police Officer Joseph Willig retired May 28 with 23 years of service to the City. Since 2002, he worked with the  community's youngest citizens as a D.A.R.E. officer and school resource officer. 

Willig's law enforcement career began in the U.S. Army in 1984. He served as a Deputy Sheriff in Hamilton County for seven years. He has received awards for Exemplary Service, Exemplary Conduct, and Medal of Merit numerous times. On multiple occasions he was the Harrison Police Department Officer of the Year and earned other police commendations. What speaks loudest of Officer Willig are many letters of appreciation he has received from judges, law enforcement leaders and local citizens. 

Harrison citizens will notice a new face in uniform. Mayor Bill Neyer swore-in Lyric D. Hamblin as a police officer June 7. Hamblin is a third year student of criminal justice at the University of Cincinnati and a graduate of the U.C. Clermont Police Academy. He is assigned to the field training program with Officer Tara Duganiero. 

Hamblin fills the vacancy created by the retirement of Sergeant Todd Anderson. The City will hire two more police officers. Details are available here.
