Communications Issue at POC

Tuesday, February 19, 2013, 7:05 AM [RELEASE AT WILL]


The telephone lines at the Police Operations Center are currently down.

All emergency calls are being routed to the El Paso County Sherriff’s Office and will then be dispatched to our officers in the field.

The Police Department is asking that all non-emergency calls be held until the problem can be located and resolved. 

We will advise the local media when the service has been returned to normal.



NOTE TO MEDIA: All updates will ONLY come from the Public Affairs Unit when available.
