Sylvania Police Chief Danilynn Miller introduced three new police officers, Ryan Stager, Erik Reichmanis, and Corey Wright, to Mayor Craig Stough and members of  City Council at the Aug. 21 meeting. The new officers joined the department at the end of July and are in the process of completing their 16-week training period. They bring the number of personnel in the department to 34, just one person short of the desired total of 35, according to Chief Miller.
“These new officers are looking forward to being involved in the community. They are very personable and friendly yet very professional. I am eager for the citizens in the community to meet and get to know them,” she related.
Stager and Reichmanis are both experienced police officers. Stager served on the SPD from 2009 to 2016 when he left for a job at Columbia Gas Co. “He never lost his interest in law enforcement and his desire to serve. He was most happy to return to our department,” the chief said. “Erik, a Start High School and University of Toledo graduate, served on the Akron Police Department for 16 years, the last six as a School Resource Officer,” she stated.
“Corey is a 2019 Northview graduate and was a member of the Sylvania Police Explorers while in high school, which Ryan Stager was in charge of at the time,” Chief Miller noted.
