PRESS RELEASE Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Office
May 4, 2020

The Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Office is pleased to announce that both 9-1-1 Communications Centers in the county have been enabled for Text-to-9-1-1. As of Monday, May 18, 2020, citizens and visitors alike will be able to text the Sheriff’s Office and the Nogales Police Department with reports of emergencies

This technology will assist us in helping those in need when a person is not able to place a voice call to our offices. Text-to-9-1-1 is to be used as a secondary method of communication to convey emergency situations and in no way is it to be used when a voice call can be made.
