Police Chief Resignation: On June 10, 2024, the Ross Township Board of Trustees received the resignation of Police Chief Burton Roberts.  His decision comes after much reflection and personal consideration.  His letter states that it has been his honor to have served Ross Township since September 2019.  His intentions are to relocate to Arizona after a stellar career of 32 years in law enforcement.  It is with regret for our township and best wishes for Chief Roberts that the Board of Trustees has accepted his letter of resignation to be effective July 5, 2024.  As with the recent appointment of our Fire Chief, the Ross Township Board of Trustees will begin an exhaustive search for our next Police Chief.  We will ensure that he or she will fulfill all of the needs that our fine township deserves.  We are proud of our department and each of the officers that have chosen to establish their careers here and we will work tirelessly to hire a Police Chief that meets all of the qualifications necessary to continue to lead the Police Department in the direction that Chief Roberts has for the past almost 5 years.  We are thankful for the fine staff of officers that Chief Roberts has assembled during his tenure as the department prepares for the next chapter to provide for the safety of all Ross residents.

Fish with a Cop – Sat., Aug. 26th

“Fish with a Cop” is part of the Ross Township Police Department’s drug prevention outreach for youth.

This event provides children with the ability to find alternative ways to have fun and feel good, other than surrendering to the peer pressure of drug use. It allows them to meet new people, help utilize their interpersonal skills, and build lasting, healthy relationships. It gets them more involved in the outdoors and in their community. The program also supports developing positive relationships with law enforcement officers through role modeling.
