Charlotte Residents Can Now Text 911 When In Trouble Instead of Calling


CMPD has just unveiled a new service for all Charlotte-Mecklenburg residents – a fully integrated 911 texting service for emergency situations.

According to officials, the new service is designed for anyone who is deaf, hard of hearing, or is in a life-threatening situation and a phone call is not possible.

CMPD released a comprehensive video today detailing the new program.

What do you think about the new service?
