Allen County’s 911 director urged commissioners to make a communications tower project more of a priority.

Chelsie Angleton told commissioners she covered two 12-hour dispatch shifts over the weekend, and was very concerned about communications problems with deputies.

“I lost track of the number of times I had to ask them to move to a different channel. I couldn’t hear what they were saying. It was all static,” she said.
