Beginning March 14, 2013 our office will only periodically be occupied by the sheriff and/or deputies. The complete county wide law enforcement, fire, and emergency medical dispatching services will be done from within the Chillicothe Police Department at 613 Walnut Street, Chillicothe, MO.
The unfortunate side of this is no one will be here to answer the telephone calls and foot traffic which comes into our office. As much as we dislike automated answering services we have no choice but to have this at the LCSO. When no one is in the building to answer the telephone the caller will be directed to hang-up and dial 911 for an emergency or basically to select a voice mailbox to leave a message for a specific employee. If you need a deputy dispatched for a non-emergency matter then please call the Chillicothe Police Department Dispatcher at 660-646-2121.
If you come to the LCSO and a deputy or the sheriff are not in the building then all our doors will be locked. A sign on the front door will direct you to call the above numbers or report to the Chillicothe Police Department dispatch to report your needs.
Please share with your family, friends, and neighbors to place the above information to help expedite any need for emergency medical, fire, or law enforcement services anywhere within Livingston County.
Thank you for your understanding and assistance as this is the best we can do with the options we currently have available to all of us.
