Akron Police Union President, Paul Hlynksy, Passes Away.

Akron, Ohio (September 25, 2015) –

Paul Hlynsky, President of the Akron police union, passed away on September 23, 2015, after a long and courageous battle with cancer.

Hlynsky started his career with the Akron Police Department on February 18, 1992. He was elected President of the Akron FOP in 1997, and was re-elected eight times. He was the longest-serving president in the history of the Akron Police union, currently numbering 445 members. During his eighteen-year tenure as FOP President, Paul was committed to honoring active, retired, and deceased officers—attending every funeral and nearly every Akron and national police memorial service.

Calling hours are scheduled from 10:30 a.m. until noon, with the funeral service immediately following, on Monday, September 28th at the FOP Akron Lodge No. 7;   2610 Ley Drive, Akron.  

"Paul was a man of true conviction and a tireless advocate for his fellow union officers," Mayor Fusco said, "I extend my prayers and deepest sympathies to his family, friends, and fellow officers for their loss. Above all, I express the sincere gratitude of the City for Paul’s twenty-three years of dedicated service and leadership in this community."
