By the beginning of the Roaring Twenties, new faces had been added to the Tiffin Police Department and some other faces were no longer seen. Chief Heilman had retired and Chief Bordner was his replacement. Many officers remained with the force a short time. The average tenure was approximately three years. This was due for the most part because of a salary lower than the rest of the community and hours of twelve hours on duty and twelve hours off duty, six days a week. The population had increased in Tiffin by nearly 20% and at this time 14,375 people were living inside the city limits.
