Join us for Holiday Happy Hour Thursday Nov 19th

On Thursday we will be part of the 3rd annual Holiday Happy Hour! So come on out and try some great drinks, visit with Santa, and have some fun!

Miss Ohio will be hanging out with us along with some other "celebrities" from the community. We want to work together and keep our roads safe by not drinking and driving this holiday season, so come enjoy some non-alcoholic mocktails and vote on your favorite (hint- it will be the one from the Sheriff's Office) at the same time!

This event will benefit the wife and children of Trooper Dan Laubacher. Trooper Laubacher passed unexpectedly in May of 2014 while off duty due to medical reasons. Please support this event not only to promote our anti drinking and driving message, but to honor a great man.

Nov 19th from 11am-2pm at Skou Hall (OSU/ATI) 1328 Dover Rd, Wooster, OH 44691

Wayne County Commissioners Support MARCs Radio Project

Early this year the Wayne County Commissioners contracted for a radio study to evaluate our current radio system. This study showed many shortcomings and suggested the county move to a P25 digital system. We are happy to report that the Commissioners plan to  move the Sheriff’s Office over to MARCS before the end of 2016. 

Wayne County Commissioners recently sent the email below to the Rittman Mayor, Village Mayors, Trustees and Fiscal Officers.

This email is to update everyone on the county’s progress and commitment in moving toward a MARCS Radio System.

1.      In order for political subdivisions to plan their budgets, the Commissioners are committed to keeping the same low rates for political subdivisions that dispatch with Wayne County-8500.  Most political subdivision contracts end in 2016.  For 2017 and 2018, we have guaranteed no more than a 2% increase each year of the contract.

Teen injured by stray bullet

Today Deputies responded to a report of a man who was injured after being hit in the head by a bullet.

After responding to the 6900 block of Zuercher Rd (north of US 250) deputies learned that the 17 year old was plowing a field with a team of horses when the teen felt a hard blow to the top of his head.

The young man then walked to his home and a neighbor called 911 on the victims behalf. The victim was then transported to the hospital where a .22 caliber bullet was removed from his head. The bullet did not penetrate the skull and the victim was treated and released.

It appears that the bullet was fired from a great distance away and simply fell from the sky and struck the victim. Neither the victim or others in the area report hearing any shots.
We believe that the round was fired by a person to was hunting or target shooting some distance away. Anyone with information should contact Captain Hunter at 330-287-5758.
