Retired Oro Valley Police Chief Werner Wolff funeral services
Retired Oro Valley Police Chief Werner Wolff’s funeral services have been scheduled for this Thursday, April 20, 2017 at 10:30 am. Services will be held at Marana Mortuary and Cemetery located at 12146 W. Barnett Road, Marana, AZ.
Chief Wolff has a lasting positive effect on the Oro Valley Police Department. He was hired as the Oro Valley Chief of Police January 1, 1983 and served for 17 years. Many of the community policing strategies he implemented are still in practice today. Chief Wolff created a family atmosphere resulting in an environment where officers and staff call Oro Valley their home. It has been 17 years since his retirement and 25 percent of the police officers still on the force were hired by Chief Wolff, which includes 60 percent of today’s leadership within the organization. Following his retirement, Oro Valley residents elected Chief Wolff to the town council where he continued to honorably serve the Oro Valley community. After his time of public service, he remained an active community member residing in Oro Valley with his wife Jeanne.
The family is encouraging donations be sent to the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona at 3003 S Country Club Rd, Tucson, AZ 85713 or The Oasis Sanctuary at PO Box 2166 Scottsdale, AZ 85252 in memory of Werner S. Wolff. Cards and flowers can be sent to the Marana Mortuary and Cemetery. www.maranamortuarycemetery.com
