South Bloomfield Division of Police News

Just a reminder to everyone, that we are not inside the office 24/7. This page is also not monitored 24/7. That's not saying we aren't available or on duty, just that being a small department we don't have the staffing for an officer to be physically inside the office all the time. So, like it's been, if you need an officer call our dispatch center, the Pickaway County Sheriff's Office at 740-474-2176. This is the office that gives our officers their radio calls, same as for Ashville and Commercial Point.
