*UPDATE – Chadron PD Admin Lines Back On

The Chadron Police Department says the problems that knocked out all but one of its administrative phone lines this afternoon have been solved and are back in service.

Chief Tim Lordino says thank you to residents for their patience during the 2 hours or so that the lines were. 911 service was unaffected.

CHADRON – The Chadron Police Department is currently experiencing troubles with its administrative phone lines with the primary line, 432-0510, out of order. Police Chief Tim Lordino says 911 is unaffected by the problem.

The only Chadron Police Department administrative line still working is 432-0520, the Handi-bus line, although non-emergency messages for the police department can also be made by calling City Hall at 432-0501.

Chief Lordino has no estimate on when the administrative lines will be restored, but says 432-0520 and 432-0501 are adequate to handle non-emergency calls until then.
