Police Department Gets Automated Phone System

April 07, 1998

The city's Police Department has installed an automated phone system that will allow dispatchers to respond faster to 911 emergency calls, authorities said.

Previously, general information police calls were routed to dispatchers, which took time and tied up lines. Callers will now get a recorded phone message in English and Spanish directing them to the appropriate departments. The general information police phone number is (213) 563-5400.
