CINCINNATI — University of Cincinnati Police Chief Maris Herold is resigning at the end of March to become the chief of the Boulder Police Department in Colorado.
“It has been an honor to serve as the Chief of the UCPD, and to guide the agency through a period of tremendous growth,” Herold said in a news release. “I could not have accomplished this without the wonderful staff, faculty and students at the University of Cincinnati, and the community. I am confident the agency will continue to succeed.”
Herold, who starts her new position on April 20, was promoted to chief in January 2018. She began her UCPD career as assistant chief in 2016. Before that, she served in numerous roles with the Cincinnati Police Department since 1993.
“We are very grateful to Chief Herold for the passion with which she has served the university over the past four years. She will be missed,” UC Director of Public Safety James Whalen said in the release.
It is unclear who will replace Herold as chief.
