Because of the way cellular telephone calls are routed, calls to 911 may not reach the proper dispatch operators. Generally, the law enforcement agency that receives a cellular 911 call is determined by the origination of the call in relation to a specific cellular tower. The Beaver County Sheriff’s Office routinely receives 911 calls from cellular users from surrounding counties.
If you are reporting an emergency via cellular telephone, it's crucial to inform the 911 operator of your exact location. The appropriate and closest response can then be activated.
