The Communications Center answers phones, dispatches emergency police, fire and rescue units throughout the county. The Sheriff’s Office is also responsible for the county wide 9-1-1 systems, the Davis-Besse emergency warning system and several alarm systems within the county.

All communications personnel are EMD certified for providing pre-arrival medical instructions. Dispatchers are assisted by the use of an A-CAD (Computer Aided Dispatching) system. This system enables them to monitor the assignment of calls as well as determine grid locations. This system is directly linked to 9-1-1.

Communication Supervisors:
Sergeant James Lucas
Corporal John Knecht
