A female 9-1-1 communicator at her work station

In October 2014, York Regional Police was the second police service in Ontario to launch the new Text with 9-1-1 service, which allows citizens who are deaf, hard of hearing or speech impaired (DHHSI) to communicate directly with a 9-1-1 call taker. Once registered, users can simply dial 9-1-1 and a text session will be initiated by the York Regional Police Communications Centre. This service enables us to better meet the needs of the DHHSI community.

To find out more about Text with 9-1-1 or to register, please visit the Text with 9-1-1 website.
