Milpitas Police Department Offers Text-to-911 Service
Texters are advised to text in their location and what kind of help is needed during a given emergency. The MPD instructs users not to send photos, videos, or emojis. If your phone’s text feature isn’t set to silent, note that reply texts from 911 staff might be audible to anyone within earshot. So if you expect to rely on Text-to-911 in the event of an emergency, it might be wise to silence your text feature now.
