Beyond The Badge – Officer Ron Hollar
Officer Hollar was born and raised in Topeka, and joined the Topeka Police Department in 1990. He’s spent time in patrol, traffic, the DARE program, and most recently as a School Resource Officer.
He went on a ride along with a TPD officer and he says that’s when his interest in Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice began. He says he especially enjoys being a School Resource Officer because of working with the kids, getting to know them a…s individuals, connecting with them, and making an impact in their lives. To him, each school is a community of its own and he’s glad to play a role in their lives.
Officer Hollar volunteers his time coaching football and volleyball for the kids he works with every day, and was recently given the Respect For Law award by the Downtown Optimist Club.
When he’s not working or volunteering, Officer Hollar enjoys spending time with his family, camping, and coaching.
Officer Hollar is a wonderful asset to our department, schools, and community. Thank you for your time and dedication!
