Welcome to the Worthington Division of Police’s Webpage.  On behalf of the members of the Division, both sworn and civilian, we strive to achieve excellence by serving and partnering with our community, its businesses and visitors.

The Worthington Division of Police has a long tradition of excellence in stewardship to the community and is currently is in transition as we have many senior members that are retiring and new officers joining the agencies ranks.  We are allocated at 32 sworn officers, have 5 sworn reserve officers and 10 civilians.  The Division is divided into four distinct areas: Uniformed Patrol, Criminal Investigations, Communications and Administration.  The agency proudly serves the City of Worthington and the Village of Riverlea with full service policing.

Our agency places its highest value on the preservation of human life and the prevention of crime while protecting the rights of individuals by upholding the United States Constitution, the laws of the State of Ohio and our local ordinances in a professional, impartial and unbiased manner. Our agency strives to provide excellence in the quality of our work and we hold ourselves individually and organizationally to the highest of standards and accountability in our daily interactions with the public.

On behalf of the Worthington Division of Police I thank you for your interest.

Jerry L. Strait, Jr.
Chief of Police
