911 dispatch tlsLakewood’s 911 phone lines are down, officials tell TLS. The lines, routed to police headquarters, have been down for at least a half hour, officials say.

Additionally, TLS has learned that the County has called in additional dispatchers to help with the heavier call volume.

No information on the outage was immediately available.
