Columbiana Police Chief Tim Gladis, who was not in attendance, has been critical of the state regulation, fearing any delay in relaying 911 calls could mean the difference between life and death in some situations.

Columbiana Police Chief Tim Gladis says his department has no need for a drug dog, and we believe he is in the position to know.

...
Gladis, who is a certified K-9 handler, admits that Columbiana has not completely escaped the scourge of drug abuse, but he feels continued participation on the county Drug Task Force is the answer, not a K-9 unit.
The chief recently told city council, "at this point in time it would be hard to keep a dog busy than say some of the surrounding areas ... having one would certainly be a benefit, however, I cannot justify to you the cost of having one versus the benefits."
At least six drug dogs have been obtained by departments in our area and sometimes we find it difficult to see how the other small communities justify their expense.
It's good that Gladis is able to recognize that the drug task force presence, for which county commissioners pay $20,000 of the cost, is a more effective weapon in the war against drugs. We applaud him for his common sense approach and his display of fiscal responsibility with taxpayers' money.

Councilman Dan Bekar asked police Chief Tim Gladis during the latest council meeting if the department would consider purchasing Narcan, which acts as an antidote to heroin on an overdose victim by improving respiration levels.

...
The drug is not currently available to the city's police force, but Gladis said they could pursue funding to make that possible.
...
"Obviously, if we are able to save a life with something as simple as an emergency injection (we will)," Gladis said. "To date, we haven't had any overdose deaths from bad heroin - although there isn't any good heroin."
He said the city could pursue grant funding through the Ohio Attorney General's Office.

Columbiana Police Chief Tim Gladis said he does not see the benefit to his department.

"Regardless of where the calls go, they're going to end up back here, so I can't reduce staff and there's really no savings to me," he said. "I have to keep a fully functional dispatch center to handle the calls when they do finally get back here."
On top of that, Gladis and others worry the change will add something that emergency crews are usually trying to reduce in emergencies - the time needed to answer a call.
"Starting in January, they'll go somewhere else, possibly the Sheriff's Office where a dispatcher will have to answer the call, ascertain where the caller's calling from and then send that call back down here," Gladis said.

"We went back to 2012 and that is where we could prove things started to happen, and came forward to about 2014, in August, and we ended up finding about $47,000 that was missing," said Columbiana Police Chief Tim Gladis.
