SAPD: Quit Calling 9-1-1 for Coronavirus InformationPress Release
SAN ANGELO, TX – The San Angelo Police Department sent out a notice Friday reminding the public not to call 9-1-1 for questions regarding COVID-19.
According to the San Angelo Police Department, throughout this Coronavirus pandemic dispatch and desk officers are still being inundated with calls from people who have questions about COVID-19, the City’s Emergency Declaration, etc.
To clarify, we are not talking about calls to report violations of the declaration (restaurants serving sit down, salons performing services, etc.). It is imperative that dispatch lines remain open for true emergencies and police/fire/medical calls for service. Please consider sharing this post:
“If you need information about the City of San Angelo’s COVID-19 Emergency Declaration, or, if you have questions regarding the declaration’s restrictions and guidelines, please do not call 9-1-1 or Dispatch Non-Emergency lines.
Instead, please visit the City of San Angelo’s website at https://www.cosatx.us/home or the City of San Angelo, Texas - Public Information Facebook page.
9-1-1 and non-emergency call takers cannot provide information or answer questions about the coronavirus (COVID-19) or our local/state Disaster Declaration. Please help us keep these lines free for emergency calls for service.
If you need to report violations of the declaration, please call Dispatch Non-Emergency at (325) 657-4315.”
