MARIETTA, Ohio (WTAP) - A former police captain has been named Marietta’s newest chief of police.

Aaron Nedeff, who was serving as acting police chief following Rodney Hupp’s retirement, will now officially head the Marietta Police Department.

Marietta Mayor Josh Schlicher told us that Tuesday morning.

Schlicher said the civil service commission met Monday night and voted to suspend the normal rules of appointing a police chief, allowing the mayor to appoint Nedeff to his new position.

WTAP has reached out to Schlicher and Nedeff for further comment. Stick with us as we learn more.
