VII.  Public Service Announcement

From a press release from the Riverside Police Department:
 
November 5, 2019
 
CONTACT: Lieutenant Melissa Bartholomew
   Communications Bureau Commander Support Services Division
    mbart@riversideca.gov (951) 353-7272
 
TEXT to 911 SYSTEM UNVEILED RIVERSIDE, CA
 
In an effort to better serve our community, the Riverside Police and Fire Departments have enabled the TEXT to 911 service within the city of Riverside.
TEXT to 911 allows mobile phone/device users to text their request for assistance, rather than using the traditional phone service.
This system is NOT meant to replace normal 911 services, but rather to be utilized by those in the community who cannot talk on the phone
or when the caller does not believe it would be safe to do so. “Traditional phone calls are still the most efficient way to gain information. This service is
meant to allow those who are deaf or hard-ofhearing, along with those in an unsafe situation where speech would be dangerous, to contact our dispatch
center to gain help in the event of an emergency,” according to Lieutenant Melissa Bartholomew, bureau commander for the Public Safety Communications
Center. There are some limitations to this service the public should be aware of. TEXT to 911 is not available while the phone is in “roaming” mode,
and photos or video cannot be sent or received. Currently, the system will only receive messages sent in plain English, and cannot translate messages
from other languages. It will also not accept emoji’s or special characters, and the use of abbreviations should be limited. Finally, the user must have a
text-capable wireless phone and wireless service subscription or contract Page 2 of 2 with a wireless carrier. While you can make an emergency voice call
to 911 using a phone without a service plan, you cannot do the same with a text. When in doubt, it is better to call for assistance rather than text.
For questions about the TEXT to 911 system, please contact Lieutenant Bartholomew at mbart@riversideca.gov.
For more details about our new TEXT to 911 feature, please watch a recent segment of the “Mayor’s Monthly” with City of Riverside Mayor Rusty Bailey
and Lieutenant Bartholomew at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=39a05aFTOlU&feature=youtu.be.
 
Does not work while “Roaming”.
Does not work on a phone without an active service plan.
Cannot translate foreign languages.
