DELPHOS — The reopening of the Delphos Police Department lobby will be delayed by a week, according to Police Chief Kyle Fittro.

On Aug. 4, not July 28 as planned, residents will have access to the lobby and a records clerk from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 7 a.m. to noon on Friday. The clerk will be able to provide records such as accident reports and contact an officer, detective or the chief, as needed.

“The clerk will also answer the phones when people call in through the phone tree,” Fittro said. “It will bring back some of the customer service we lost when dispatching was transferred to the Allen County Sheriff’s Office. We have a lot of people who come to the police station for many different reasons. It’s a 60-40 split in favor of the person wanting to speak to an officer or detective versus getting a report.”
