If you are in an emergency situation, but can't verbally share your location over the phone, you have the ability to share your exact location with our dispatchers through the app "what3words."
This app assigns 3 unique words to every 3-meter square in the world. You can text those 3 words to 911 and our dispatchers will be able to see your location and send the necessary assistance.
If you feel you will ever be in a situation where officers need to know your location but you won't be able to verbally tell us where you are, please download this app.
Remember, you can text 911 if it is ever not safe to call for help. Enter 911 in the number field, text your emergency and three words if applicable, and leave your phone on.
