Pictometry is now in use by the Sheriff’s office. This is a sophisticated mapping system which enables agencies to view any location in the County in great detail. Aerial views as well as oblique angle views are available, via computer, to our Dispatchers. From these views, accurate measurements of both horizontal and vertical distances can be made. This allows our communications to inform Patrol, Fire, and EMS crews of a scene while still in transit to the location. They then arrive with a good knowledge of what to expect. We are fortunate to be one of only four Ohio Counties to have this system.

Home heating and the frequent use of additional space heaters and fireplaces needs to watched closely to prevent to prevent overheating and the risk of fire. We are also reminded to adjust our driving habits. Slick roads and patches of ice require close attention and reduced speed. A survival kit for cold weather should be a part of tools in every vehicle.
