Chief Ray Heverly

The Village of Sebring is saddened to report that Chief of Police Ray Heverly passed away today, December 30, 2016, in Akron surrounded by family and friends. Our heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with his family in this time of sorrow.

Chief Heverly began his law enforcement career of 27 years as a part-time patrolman on March 10, 1987 with the Sebring Police Department. He received an appointment as a fulltime police officer on November 9, 1990. On October 23, 2000 he was promoted to chief of police, in which he served with distinction for 12 years until his retirement on June 19, 2012. Shortly thereafter, he was reappointed as chief on August 19, 2012.

Chief Heverly was the recipient of numerous commendations for his service including the Gallantry Star Medal, Drug Buster Medal with Bronze Palm Leaf, Chief’s Achievement Medal, Ready Commendation Medal and the Distinguished Police Service Medal from the American Police Hall of Fame.

Ray’s love for Sebring and his dedication to his work, the department and the community was always clear. He was always there for anyone and everyone that needed his help. Words cannot adequately express his loss and he will be greatly missed.

Located in scenic northeastern Ohio, the Village of Sebring has a rich and remarkable heritage and history. Sebring was incorporated as a village in 1899 by the Sebring family. Originally known as the Pottery Capital of the World for its large scale pottery industry in the 20th century, Sebring is a vibrant village of 4,500 people with a diverse commercial and business community.
