Suspended Rossford officer to resign or be fired


A Rossford police officer convicted of domestic violence remains on unpaid suspension, but he will resign or be fired, police Chief Glenn Goss said.

Officer Kevin Swanson, a 20-year veteran, pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of domestic violence in Wood County Common Pleas Court on July 26 and received a 180-day suspended sentence and three years’ probation.

The violence occurred May 4 and involved a pregnant woman at his Rossford home while he was off duty.
