Ohio University graduate Zachary Hahn is the latest addition to the Ohio University Police Department. His duties as police officer include patrolling the University and answering service calls in his cruiser during the midnight shift.
Hahn, 24, is originally from Bay Village and received his associate’s degree in social sciences from OHIO in 2010 and completed his bachelor’s degree in criminal justice at Baldwin Wallace University. Two days after graduating from Baldwin Wallace, he started the Police Officer Basic Academy at Washington State Community College in Marietta.
Prior to joining OUPD, Hahn worked as a court officer in Marietta Municipal Court and worked part-time as an officer for Marietta College.
"I love Southern Ohio and always wanted to attend Ohio University and start my life in this area," he said. "I have two younger sisters who attend Ohio University. One is in her senior year and the other will be starting this fall."
Hahn is most excited to work and give back to a school he has ties with. "I have always wanted to be a police officer and really enjoy that I’m able to do so at this University," he said. "I really enjoy being in Southern Ohio and working for a school that has so much pride."
Hahn is engaged to be married this fall and has a sixth-month old German shepherd puppy.
