Columbus City Council Releases Statement Regarding Discipline of Officer Zachary Rosen
has nearly 2,000 police officers who risk their lives every day to make our
community safe. We cannot allow the behavior of one officer to undermine the
positive work of the entire division.
any officer acts in a manner that violates the values, expectations and
policies of our police division, it creates distrust between the community and
the officers who are sworn to protect us. In fact, these actions make policing
and the jobs of our officers more difficult and dangerous.
accepts Public Safety Director Pettus’ decision and appreciates the community’s
patience in allowing the process to play out according to the procedures
outlined in the agreement between the City of Columbus and the FOP.
