Police & Fire
Salem Police Dept. - **** UPDATE **** 02-01-15/3:40 PM The issues affecting calls from Comcast VOIP phones to the Willamette Valley Communications Center (WVCC) appear to have been resolved for the time being, however Comcast is continuing to investigate the problem. The issue was with Comcast customers whose phone service is internet based. The Salem Police Department recommends that those whose phones are internet based have an alternate means available to contact WVCC if necessary until the issue is completely resolved. ### Starting at 11pm yesterday, Comcast VOIP phone systems began having difficulties and are not a reliable way to contact 911. The 911 system is working properly, only VOIP calls are affected. Comcast is aware of the problem and working on a solution; however, it may affect all Comcast VOIP users in the Mid-Willamette Valley region, including the cities of Salem, Keizer, Dallas, Monmouth, Independence and Marion and Polk counties, as well as any Comcast users in Lincoln county. At this time, it is unknown how long it will take to resolve the problem. For additional information, contact Comcast directly.
