Warsaw Police Department mourning the loss of an officer

WARSAW, Ind. - Officer Jason Dobbins, 50, of the Warsaw Police Department, passed away on Saturday due to surgery complications.

Officer Dobbins had served as a full-time sworn officer for 16 years.

He began his career with the Plymouth Police Department and worked for them from 2004 to 2012.

In 2012, Dobbins went through a lateral transfer process and began serving the city of Warsaw as a patrol officer, then he later served the city on the Warsaw Dive Team.

On January 24, 2020, Officer Dobbins had just begun his tour of duty when he contacted Central Dispatch stating he needed an ambulance for extreme chest pain.

He was rushed to the Kosciusko Community Hospital where the on-call doctor recognized that Dobbins was suffering from a critical heart condition.

They rushed him by ambulance to Lutheran in Fort Wayne for surgery that Dobbins pulled through successfully.

Complications then surfaced days after the surgery took place which resulted in his passing.

The Warsaw Police Department is shocked and saddened at the sudden course of events that have led to Officer Dobbins passing.

Dobbins leaves behind a son Hayden, 23, three daughters, Bayly, age 20, Jaylyn, age 18, and Payton, age 14, as well as a stepson, Jake Crousore, who is 19-years old. Dobbins recently married his wife, Kara.

The Warsaw community is asked to help surround the Dobbins family with love and support through this difficult time.
