The communications division handles all incoming calls for service, including 911 Emergency and Cellular calls for fire, law enforcement, and emergency medical service for the entire County, as-well-as routine calls for police or other related services.

The communications division uses technology such as AVL and GPS mapping, and can track our units in real-time. These technologies combine with our CAD (Computer Aided Dispatch) system, DDTI Mapping, and Pictometry imagery give our office the ability to interface and respond to the needs of Pickaway County citizens in the need of aid at the most efficient way possible.

This Division also monitors various alarms, dispatches all Sheriff’s Units, Village Police, Township Fire and EMS Units. The division constantly monitors the Noah Weather Radio and activates alert sirens for the entire county, as-well-as the City of Circleville in the event of threatening conditions. The Communications Division is the heart of the Pickaway County Sheriff’s Office and many times the first contact citizens have with the Sheriff’s Office.
