COLUMBUS, Ind. — A button installed in each office of Bartholomew County Governmental Office Building will link workers there with police.

County Commissioners on Monday agreed to spend $8,271 to install buttons in 15 rooms, including offices and meeting halls.

Commissioner Larry Kleinhenz said the buttons will give workers an instant link with police in case employees' daily encounters with residents turn dangerous.
