Grantsville Police Chief, Jeff Starcher
Jeff Starcher has been named the new Grantsville Chief of Police.
Starcher graduated from the WV State Police Academy in 2009, completing a 16-week course consisting of a rigorous PT program, defensive tactics, O.C. certification, baton certification and criminal and traffic law.
He had previously served as an officer with the Grantsville department, and is still serving as a part-time Calhoun deputy sheriff.
A 2006 Calhoun High School graduate, Starcher studied criminal justice, and was a former news director for WVRC Radio in Spencer.
Starcher's long-time ambition has been to become a police officer. "My community has given to me and I will give to it," he said.
He is the son of Winifred and Norma Starcher of Orma.
Last weekend he was united in marriage with Samantha Marie Jarvis.
