The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office, along with city and town police departments, announced the new “text-to-911” service Wednesday. This new technology means all 911 Public Safety Dispatch Centers in Yavapai County are equipped to receive and respond to mobile phone Text-to-
911 messages from our community. These texts will be routed to the appropriate 9-1-1 center, based on jurisdiction, when sent within Yavapai County. To use the service just enter “911” to the “to” field on your cell phone. The message to 911 should be brief and contain the location of the emergency and the type of help needed and then hit “send.” Be prepared to answer questions and follow instructions from the 911 call taker. Also, keep text messages brief and concise. The service is available in every Yavapai County city.
