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.
