UPDATE: DISPATCH NUMBERS BACK IN SERVICE
The dispatch numbers for the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office (651-7400 and 689-5705) are now in service. The lines had gone down earlier Wednesday due to an equipment failure at the provider’s central office in Crestview.
NUMBERS OUT OF SERVICE TEMPORARILY
The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office main dispatch numbers, 651-7400 and 689-5705, are temporarily out of service due to a fiber optic cable being cut somewhere in north Okaloosa County.
No calls can be accepted until further notice. Communications staff is working to try to acquire back-up as quickly as possible.
The County’s 9-1-1 system however is operational because those calls are being routed through another agency.
