| April 19, 2024

DOVER (WJER) (April 19, 2024) – The city has hired Bob Everett as its part-time director of public safety, Mayor Shane Gunnoe announced Friday afternoon.

“Bob has a lengthy record of public service and I have no doubt he will do the best he can, working with the Police and Fire Chiefs, to enhance our departments. There were several qualified applicants, but I chose Everett based on his many years of public service as well as private positions.”

Everett is the director of safety and security at Buckeye Career Center. He will maintain that position.

“I’m honored Mayor Gunnoe selected me for this vital position with the City of Dover; I will do the best I can to assist in continuing the make the Police and Fire Departments the finest safety forces the City of Dover can offer our citizens.”

Everett was recently a Dover School Board member before resigning last year to take the job at Buckeye. He had been president of the Tuscora Lodge No. 4 Fraternal Order of Police until recently and ran for Dover mayor in 2015 against Richard Homrighausen. A long career in law enforcement includes 25 years with the Dover Police Department. He retired from there in 2006.

Gerry Mroczkowski was the city’s last safety director. He retired at the beginning of the year after six years in the part-time position that at the time also included the responsibilities of the human resources director. Since then, city administration has decided to split the jobs, with the HR director a full-time position and the safety director part-time.
