Fred Stevens to start job as Seneca County Sheriff early




Fred Stevens

Tiffin, Ohio — Current Tiffin Police Chief Fred Stevens will transition into his new job as Seneca County Sheriff earlier than originally planned.

Stevens won the Republican primary race for the top job at the sheriff’s office earlier this year, and went on to run unopposed in the November general election.

Stevens was initially due to begin his term on January 4, but current Sheriff William Eckelberry informed the Seneca County Commissioners his last day would be December 31.

Therefore, the commissioners on Tuesday authorized Stevens to be appointed as the acting sheriff effective January 1, before he officially becomes full-time sheriff on January 4.
