Expect interruptions in police phone service

On Wednesday, Sept. 13, beginning at 8 a.m., Verizon Communications will be upgrading the Holmes Beach Police Department’s phone system.

This upgrade will take several hours and may cause the phone system to “go down” intermittently. If you require the assistance of a police officer for a non-emergency situation during this time, and are unable to contact dispatch at 708-5800, call the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office at 747-3011, ext. 1144.

If you have an emergency, dial 911.
