Chief Mike Kallai, spent his entire career with the Barberton PD. He was a friend of the Ohio Association of Chiefs of Police. He passed away suddenly while on vacation with his family during the summer of 2010. Chief Kallai was a graduate of the PELC program, and he was active in the PELC Alumni program among several other committees in law enforcement.

Chief Kallai graduated from the CLEE program in CLASS IX and was appointed to the CLEE Advisory Board shortly after graduation. He was in the middle of his second three-year term on the CLEE board when he passed away unexpectedly.

Chief Kallai was a strong advocate for the CLEE program and actively worked on the board to strengthen CLEE and to ensure its stature for years to come through his work to create a sound financial future.

Chief Kallai was active in his community, serving as a varsity assistant wrestling coach at Wadsworth High School as well as being in integral part of numerous other community activities and events.

Following his untimely death, the CLEE board established the Chief Michael Kallai CLEE Award to be presented each year at graduation to recognize one of the graduates who performed exceptionally in the CLEE academics as well as had an established record of community involvement, as did Chief Kallai.
