FOLEY - The Foley Police Department has upgraded the system used to communicate with hearing impaired citizens. The new system allows for more efficient communication with the Deaf community. The upgrade required a new phone number to connect with the police department. It is 251-952-4076. The system provides users the ability to text with Foley’s police communications officers.
“This device is not new to our department, but in order to stay in line with current technology, we have upgraded to an ‘app based’ program. In doing so, the phone number has also changed. Should a member of the hearing-impaired community need assistance, you only need to call 251-952-4076 to be connected to one of our communication officers,” said Lt. Otis Miller.
The Foley Police Department strives to provide exceptional service. The routine number for dispatch officers is 251-943-4431.
