The Pike County Sheriff’s Office Communications Center is staffed 24 hours a day 7 days a week in three 8 hour shifts.

Dispatchers are the first line of communications at the Pike County Sheriff’s Office. Dispatchers not only answer 911 calls, but also non-emergency and administrative calls.

Another aspect of the dispatcher’s job is sending units to calls.  The Pike County Sheriff’s Office dispatches for all Pike County Sheriff’s Office units, Piketon Police Department, Pike County EMS, and all Pike County Volunteer Fire Departments.

Due to the number of agencies dispatched by our department it is important for our dispatch team to work efficiently and be able to multitask. At any given time there could be multiple agencies out on multiple calls.

The Communications Division is the life-line of the Pike County Sheriff’s Office and is a key component to the safety of all of Pike County First Responders
