HERKIMER – The Herkimer Police Department is now utilizing the Herkimer County 911 Dispatch Center between the hours of 11 p.m. and 7 a.m., the department announced on its Facebook page.

Beginning yesterday, all calls for service from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. will be directed to the 911 Center as there will no longer be an officer assigned to the police desk during that time. Herkimer Police Chief Michael Jory says this will allow another officer to be on active patrol during those overnight hours.

A phone has been installed outside of the Herkimer village hall, near the front door, which will automatically dial the Herkimer Police Department. If it’s not answered within three rings, it will roll over to the 911 Center. This phone is not capable of making any other calls.

Chief Jory says that once the call is answered by a dispatcher, an officer will be assigned to respond to the police station to handle the complaint.

For non-emergency calls after 11 p.m., people are asked to continue calling the police desk at 315-866-4330. If an officer is at the station then he or she will take the call, and if nobody is there then someone at the 911 Center will receive the call.
