The Livingston County Sheriff released an announcement to the press about sharing a building with the Chillicothe Police Department.
The Chillicothe Police Department will be in the exact same location while the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office will be moving from the current location into 919 Jackson Street which is the south portion of the building the CPD is housed in. This will allow both agencies to work more closely together, save money, with the biggest benefit being a much better exchange of information and assistance on many issues.
Other issues Chief Maples and Sheriff Cox are working on is having joint investigations of very serious crimes such as a specialized group of officers trained as a Sexual Assault Investigations Team. When a serious offense occurs they can focus on having specialized officers and deputies assigned to those investigations. This too can save both organizations money and time while providing an overall better service to their citizens.
Currently, the Missouri Driver’s License Exam office and Rumery and Associates are currently housed in the south side of the CPD building but they will be moving into the administrative portion of the current LCSO at 901 Webster Street. Livingston County will keep the current sheriff’s office building as the former jail area is used to store a large amount of the county office records and that area of the building will remain secure and only accessible to county employees.
