Police Chief Robert Ware Statement to the Community

Message from PD Ware


To the Worthington Community from Police Chief Robert Ware,

Over the past few days, we have been engaging with some community members about how to build relationships and solve problems that adversely affect Black students, residents and visitors of Worthington. Many of the people that participated in the protest two Saturdays ago have expressed a desire to participate in conversations to move our community forward, but fear being arrested for activities as a result of that protest.

These constructive conversations are completely separate from the events of that day, and you will not be arrested by joining the discussion. We are willing to have conversations with anyone who can help create solutions that make Worthington a better community.

In the interest of proving transparency for the community, we are releasing various reports and data to help the public better understand the operations of the Worthington Division of Police.  Additional data will be added over time. The information can be found under the police section of the City of Worthington website at worthington.org/police.
