Message from Wooster PD: COVID-19
The Wooster Police Department prides itself on our ability to communicate with those we serve. I think we can all agree that the ever evolving situation withCOVID-19 is unprecedented and there is a lot of uncertainty. Nevertheless, what is certain is that our officers are out there 24 hours a day 7 days a week doing our best to ensure all are safe.
With that being said, in an effort to maintain our commitment to everyone’s safety we have made some temporary changes. First, we will respond to emergency or in-progress calls and crashes. This will not change. Most importantly, we will be out there patrolling. You will see our officers in all areas of the city and we will continue to protect and serve. However, in an effort to limit everyone’s potential exposure to COVID-19 we have made some changes. These modifications include officers using the phone and email to gather information on non-emergency calls. We also ask that you not come to the safety center to make a report or speak to an officer. Moreover, if you would like to do a public record request, please do so by calling first and consider utilizing email@example.com. You can also acquire records by going to the public record section of our PD website. Finally, in addition to these operational changes you may notice that we will not be doing building tours, in-person meetings, demonstrations, or speaking engagements.
We are proud of the relationship we have built with all of you over the last several years. Part of what makes WPD special is our willingness and ability to connect with the public. Whereas we may be limiting our in-person contact with all of you, it doesn’t mean that we’re not there. We will continue to reach out via social media and will be visible.
