With continued funding from the Ohio Drug Abuse Prevention Grant, the School Resource Officer position remained intact for 2014. The grant money greatly reduces the cost to place a uniformed Police Officer in the Wooster City School District. Officer Ken Linz is now serving the children of former students that he taught many years ago. The Wooster City Police Department values our connection with our community’s youth.
With the national attention on police and citizen relations this past year, it is good to know that over the many years, the Wooster Police Department has been able to draw the support of our community. With that in mind, we will continue to nurture our relationship with the citizens we are sworn to protect and serve as it is one of our most valuable resources.
