Have you ever called 911 from your cell phone and were transferred to the California Highway Patrol (CHP) instead of the local police department?
Due to the location of cell towers, it is common for 911 cell phone calls to get routed to CHP. To help prevent this from occurring, Menifee Police Department has a new 10-Digit Emergency Contact Number, (951) 894-6530, for individuals to directly call in an emergency. This number will be answered in the same manner as existing 911 lines and does not change 911 calls in any way. Callers can still use 911, and Menifee PD's non-emergency number, (951) 677-4964.
Please program the new 10-digit number, (951)894-6530, into your cell phone so it’s readily available to you if there is ever a need.
