After serving 12 years of teaching D.A.R.E., Officer Titley was assigned to Patrol and became a School Resource Officer. Titley became a member of the Regional Emergency Response Team in 2005 and was at the standoff in Fairborn in that role.

Officer Titley has received several awards including Employee of the Year in 2001, the Knight’s of Columbus Blue Coat Award and the Fairborn City Schools Excellence award in 2014.

FPD Officials say Titley will remain on Administrative Leave while the investigation continues and while he receives mandatory counseling, which the Department says is standard procedure in these types of events.
