In an emergency, such as a crime in progress, you may hesitate to call the police—even if you should. Maybe you’re worried that an intruder will hear your voice on the telephone and harm you, even if you’re hiding out of plain sight. Maybe you don’t want to take the time—or don’t have the time—to provide details of the situation to an officer or dispatcher who answers the telephone at your local police precinct. Maybe it’s all of these things—and you certainly can’t text 911. This is where 1-833-3POLICE comes in.
