Police chief stresses E-911 information
Marshall County E-911 addresses are to be posted on the front of the home and/or at the driveway so law enforcement, fire and emergency medical providers can locate the structure after an emergency call for help to 911.
Some facts to keep in mind when purchasing house numbers include:
“It is a fact that 911 speeds up the dispatch of emergency services; however, delays may happen if emergency responders cannot find you,” said Holly Springs Police Chief Patricia Selman.
“Holly Springs Police Department’s 24-hour dispatch number is 252-2121.”
Selman also provided two incident reports for the past week.
On June 27, Tim Oliver, 42, of Holly Springs, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault. The charges were the alleged result of a family dispute and use of a weapon, Selman said.
A grand larceny/auto theft was reported June 29 in the 200 block of East Salem Avenue. The victim stated that her 2001, bronze colored Oldsmobile Aurora was stolen between 10 p.m. on June 28 and 6 a.m. on June 29. The vehicle was later recovered on Briscoe Road in Marshall County.
Anyone having information regarding this incident is encouraged to call the Holly Springs Police Department at 662-252-2122 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-729-2169.
