ASHLAND — Ashland mayor Matt Miller administered the oath of office to new part-time Police Officer Marcus “Nate” Haring last week.

Haring, 38, of Ashland, is a United States Army veteran with a Bachelor of Arts degree from The Ohio State University.

He has 10 years of experience as a Patrol Officer with the Lorain Police Department and is currently an Auxiliary Officer with the Loudonville Police Department. Nate works full time as a realtor with Haring Realty.

Having prior law enforcement experience, Haring will shadow trainers for several months to learn organizational procedures while becoming more familiar with operations.

Haring is excited about the opportunity to work in public safety for the City of Ashland and hopes to compete for a full-time position when one becomes available.

Presently, the Ashland Police Division staffs 32 full-time and three part-time police officers.

The Division is authorized to employ four part-time sworn personnel.
