The Sheriff's Office Has a New Phone System!
The Sheriff's Office is happy to report we have a new phone system that is up and operational and will allow individuals to access dispatch more easily. With the new system, callers can contact the sheriff's office (719-783-2270) and press 1 to speak with a dispatcher, eliminating the need to call a separate number. Our hope this makes the process easier for those needing assistance to reach the appropriate person here at the office. We would like to thank the E911 for making this possible with their generous funding of this project.
