We just got word from the Texarkana Texas Police Department that the 911 Text service is currently offline.

Here's the word they put out on Facebook:

The Text to 911 service is currently not working across the region and in Texarkana. If you need emergency services, you should call 911 rather than trying to text.

We are working to get the issue resolved and everything working again as soon as possible. However, we don't know how long it will be down.

You can still call 911 if you have an emergency, it's just the text function that's not working right now. We will try to inform you when it is back up and running but be sure you follow TTPD on Facebook for these kinds of updates as well.
