FAQ ( frequently asked question )

Enhanced 911, or E-911, is an enhanced version of a typical Caller ID system. Enhanced 911 displays the caller's name, phone number, street address, apartment or space numbers, the type of phone, and a recommendation for police, fire, or ambulance response. It also keeps numbers from being blocked, even if they are unlisted. Having the location immediately displayed on each 911 call allows the dispatcher to quickly confirm the location where help is needed. The sooner our dispatchers can verify a location, the sooner they can send help to you. ( E-911 - Jackson County Sheriff )
