Upper Arlington Police Chief Tracy Hahn has retired, according to a city official.

Hahn, Upper Arlington’s first female police chief, reportedly has retired from her post after more than two years leading the Upper Arlington Police Division.

Hahn said she is retiring from the Upper Arlington post but has accepted a job as deputy chief of police at Ohio State University.

Hahn posted a Twitter message at 1:05 a.m. Sept. 21 stating, “Today is my last day w/ the UAPD. For 25 yrs I have had the pleasure of working with a group of exceptional people who love what they do & do it well. Thank you UA & THANK YOU to the men and women of the Upper Arlington Police Division, it’s been a great ride! Chief Tracy Hahn.”

Calls to Upper Arlington City Manager Ted Staton, Assistant City Manager Dan Ralley and UAPD Public Information Officer Bryan McKean were not immediately returned Friday afternoon, Sept. 21.

Upper Arlington Community Affairs Director Emma Speight confirmed Sept. 21 that Hahn had retired. However, Speight was on vacation this week and referred further questions to Ralley.
