PAULDING – On Saturday, June 28, the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office experienced technical difficulties with the 911 system.

“We are not receiving any 911 calls at this time, and the calls are not rolling over to our neighboring county as they should in this situation,” was Sheriff Jason Landers’ initial statement concerning the situation.

Personnel from the phone company worked on the issue until nearly 7:30 a.m. Sunday, June 29 when a second press release indicated the matter had been corrected.

“The issues we were experiencing with our E911 system have been resolved,” said the sheriff. “I apologize for any inconvenience this might have caused. We strive to bring the best customer service possible to our citizens.

“I praise the representatives from Windstream that worked swiftly to resolve this problem,” he concluded.

Any questions or concerns about the matter should be directed to the sheriff’s office at 419-399-3791.
