Behind the mirrored glass in the lobby of the Gahanna Division of Police you can find one of the most integral parts of a police department. The individuals that sit behind this glass are the first people that you talk to in a time of need. They are the heart of emergency response. Their reassuring voices are heard but they are rarely seen. Their jobs help save lives of officers and community members. This week we thank them for their dedication and hard work. #Nationalpublicsafetytelecommunicatorsweek 💙💓

After 21 years of exceptional leadership, with 24 years of service to the City of Gahanna, Chief Dennis Murphy will retire. Having served as the City's longest standing Police Chief, he transformed the Division into a modern, professional police force. During his tenure, Chief Murphy implemented the Division's community-oriented policy strategy because he recognized that when we stand together along those we serve...we stand stronger. Because of this philosophy, Chief Murphy established bonds of trust and cooperation between the Division and our diverse neighborhoods that will endure through the administrations of Chiefs to come. For those he led, he raised expectations, demanded excellence, and demonstrated by example what it truly means to Serve and Protect. He equipped the Division with the right tools for the right job...so that we could not keep our community safe, but keep each other safe as well. Because of his leadership, today the Division is a standard bearer of central Ohio law enforcement. And though his service has now come to a proud and safe close, Chief Murphy leaves behind a force of nearly 80 strong...A force comprised of some of the finest men and women in law enforcement and public safety. He leaves us with a clear vision...an understanding of our objectives...and a singular focus on executing our mission. Chief Murphy, we wish you a happy, long, and healthy retirement. We thank you for the legacy you leave behind. Together, we will carry on your purpose!
