The plaque near the front door notes that the building was dedicated in 2001 as Sylvania Township’s first stand-alone police station at 4420 King Rd.
On Oct. 26 that front door will be locked for the first time in memory.
Sylvania Township Police Chief Paul Long said the building had been left unlocked, although only to the lobby, outside of normal business hours, because there was always a shift of dispatchers available if needed.
That staff will be leaving the King Road site Oct. 26 and joining those from other police departments to form the Lucas County 9-1-1 Consolidation. near downtown Toledo.
Chief Long stressed that policing will not change in the township.
“If you need us, call and we’ll be there,” he said, adding that there will be no change to patrol duties or any other aspects in policing in the township.
The department has installed a telephone outside the building’s front door for anyone who arrives after business hours,
The police station will be open and manned from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
