Pueblo, CO: In conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the 911 emergency number, Pueblo County Sheriff Kirk M. Taylor is pleased to announce the implementation of Text-to-911 at the Pueblo County 911 Center. The new service gives individuals in need an alternative way to connect with a 911 Communication Officer during an emergency.

Citizens and guests who are anywhere outside the city limits of Pueblo are now able to text a message directly to the Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office communication center. While calling is typically the best way to communicate with 911, there are instances when texting is a better option. Texting is often preferred for those with access and functional needs. The system also has benefitted victims in situations where silence is needed for their safety, such as with domestic violence or kidnapping.
