My wife Sandy and I are deeply saddened upon hearing the news of Ron’s passing. Over the years we enjoyed attending various parties with Ron and Jane or just Ron and I playing golf together He was truly one of the good guys. I can’t express in words how much of an impact Ron had on my police department career. Suffice to say when he moved up the promotional ladder, it seemed I was always one step behind. Some people acquire “rank” and become ‘bosses’. Not Ron. He was a leader, a mentor, a teacher and a friend. He set the example for what police work was all about. He never “asked” anyone to do anything he himself had not already done. The adventures we shared while working in the Detective Bureau on the late shift I am sure could fill a book. I will always cherish them. And as I reflect back over the years, some things stand out: I am a better person for knowing Ron Mehl and a better police commander for having listened to Inspector Ronald Mehl. And now he is re-united with his Jane. Rest in Peace, my friend. Craig V. Hasting Deputy Inspector of Police (ret)

I worked with Ron for many years as an ID tech. We did crime scenes, bomb scenes and array of other things. He was always fun to be with and was always very professional. He always respected the people that he worked with. Judy was Great to work with too. May Ron rest in peace with God. “Be safe my brother “ ‍♂️
