We are sad to say that the Village of Somerset has lost a great man. Earl Willford was known by many in the community. Some of you may have known Earl as the no nonsense parking enforcement officer. Some of you may have known Earl personally. No matter how you knew Earl, everyone knew him as a proud, strong, and honest man. Earl worked with our officers on a daily basis. He touched the lives of everyone at the police department and village office. Earl Willford may be gone but he will never be forgotten.

K9 Dolly and the Somerset Police Department would like to wish everyone a happy and safe new year. We look forward to serving the community in 2017!

Recently K9 Dolly visited Madison in Wooster, Ohio. Madison is battling a rare form of brain cancer known as Medulloblastoma. Madison is a very brave young girl who is still high in spirits while battling this rare cancer. Arrangements were made with the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office to have Dolly visit Madison. Dolly and her handler enjoyed visiting Madison. The family is not asking for handouts but the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office started taking in donations of gas cards for the family so that they can travel to and from the hospital for treatment. If you would like to send a card of encouragement and a gas card to the family send it to the Wayne County Sheriff’s Offic e at 201 W. North St. Wooster, Ohio 44691.

The Somerset Police Department with the help of the Perry County Sheriff's Office, the Ohio State Highway Patrol, and the Franklin County Sheriff's Office dealt with a possible bomb threat at Holy Trinity School and Church. The school encountered a male that they did not feel comfortable with and asked for local law enforcement. After making contact with the male, he stated that there was a possibility of bombs in the church and school.
