The Delphos Police Department lobby is currently closed to the public with a call button on the front door. When the button is pushed, it will connect the person with the Allen County Sheriff’s Office. Once the nature of the call is understood, an officer will be called to the station or the person will be transferred to a phone tree for the municipal building, the police department of the fire department and asked to leave a voice mail for the appropriate person.

DELPHOS — Hope for the best; prepare for the worst. That is how the City of Delphos and the Allen County Sheriff’s Office looked at moving dispatching services from Delphos to the Allen County 9-1-1 Dispatch Center. After nearly two weeks, the mantra seems to have worked.

“Overall, everything has gone very well,” Delphos Safety Service Director Shane Coleman said. “Have we had major issues? No. Have we had minor issues? Of course.”

Allen County 9-1-1 Director Chief Deputy Jim Everett is also pleased with the smooth transition.

“Everything has gone fairly easy,” Everett said. “We did have a case that led us to update our maps. We had a call from just outside of Delphos and the address was not in our system. We’ve updated that and we’re good to go.”

Allen County has added two dispatchers to the center with one currently being trained and the second starting in the next week or so. Everett said there really hasn’t been a noticeable change in the call volume at the center because all landline and cell phone 9-1-1 calls from Delphos were already being serviced at the center.

DELPHOS — Director Kelly Rist was able to have the cause of a leak in the roof of the newest part of the Delphos Public Library pinpointed this week.

“It had been leaking and I called the company who did the roof and they said it wasn’t them and I called the company that installed the HVAC system vents and they said it wasn’t their problem,” Rist told trustees Wednesday afternoon. “So when it rained Tuesday morning, I had both of them come and it was a faulty seal in a vent.”
