BLUFFTON, Ind. (21Alive) – Bluffton Police Chief Tammy Schaffer will be retiring on Monday.
Schaffer has been the police chief for the past 10 years and a combined 26 years on the police force.
She’s come a long way since then. Before being a police officer, Schaffer was a hairdresser.
The town marshal was a customer at her salon, and she took his offer to join their department.
Schaffer joined the force in 1988, rose through the ranks as a sergeant and became Deputy Chief in 2003.
As one of the few female police chiefs in Indiana, Schaffer is credited for "paving the way" for women in not just in her city's police force, but for women everywhere.
