(TNS) – Enid Police Department’s 911 dispatchers are getting more accurate locations for cellphone users calling 911 via the RapidSOS software used in the center.

Lt. Warren Wilson said the software is able to pinpoint callers using iPhones with iOS 12+ and Andriod phones version 4.0+, decreasing response times for emergency personnel dispatched to 911 calls.

Wilson said last year, the 911 center received about 19,000 calls from those using cellphones, compared to about 7,000 who called 911 using a landline. He said there is a trend for increasing amounts of calls from cellphone users and fewer calls from land lines.
