We are the primary communications center for the Darke County Sheriff’s Office, five village police departments, nine EMS services, and seventeen fire departments. Our dispatch center also provides communications for the game warden from the Department of Natural Resources, Animal Control Officer, Darke County Coroner, Shelter From Violence, Crime Stoppers, and Safe School Hotline.
