Menifee, Murrieta Police Departments now offer text to 911 service

The Menifee and Murrieta Police Departments now offer text to 911 service. Text to 911 technology provides the public with an additional means of requesting police or fire assistance. This service is especially important for those who are deaf, hard-of-hearing, speech-impaired, or find it’s too dangerous to speak and need emergency assistance. This service is not meant to replace normal 911 services.

To use the text to 911 service, simply enter 911 in the “to” field of your message, provide your location and the nature of your emergency, and respond to any questions the dispatcher sends. Do not send pictures or videos, use emojis, acronyms, abbreviations, or send in a group message. Location accuracy varies by phone carrier and should not be relied upon.

This service is available in English only, translation services are not available at this time. 

Other law enforcement agencies within Riverside County that offer text to 911 capability include the Banning Police Department, Beaumont Police Department, Blythe Police Department, California Highway Patrol – Inland Empire, California Highway Patrol – Indio, Cathedral City Police and Fire Department, Corona Police Department, Desert Hot Springs Police Department, Hemet Police Department, Indio Police Department, Palm Springs Police Department, Riverside Police Department, Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, and UC Riverside Police Department.
