Former Hazel Park Chief of Police Charles W. Young, Sr., passed away yesterday at the age of 87. Hired in 1951, Mr. Young worked his way up through the ranks to become Chief in 1967, where he served with distinction until his retirement in 1984. He also served as President of both the Southeastern Michigan Association of Chiefs of Police and the South Oakland County Chief's Association, as well as being Chairman of the Awards & Citation Committee of the Michigan Association of Cheifs of Police. Mr. Charles W. Young was one of the finest policemen the City of Hazel Park has ever known. He will be greatly missed.
