Q. Should I call 911 for text threats of physical harm?
Dear Juneau Resident,
Only use 911 to report texts threatening physical harm if you are in immediate danger. Some factors to consider are if the person has access to you and you canít get to a safe and secure place. Also think about any reason you have to believe the threats are sincere like the person has assaulted you before. If you are not in immediate danger then use the business line of 586-0600 to report the texts.
