Reason No. 113 to live in Henderson: The city is the first city in Nevada to have the text-to-911 ability.
The reason this texting ability is so critical is that it’s silent. If you can’t hear the tapping of the keys, the victim can alert the Henderson police without the perpetrator hearing. That is not the case, of course, with a phone call.
Sadly for me I had to make a 911 call. (It was1985, long before anyone ever even thought about texts.) The perp, who had a knife, was already in the house. He heard everything I was saying.
I have lived in Henderson for 13 years (in County for seven years before that) and fortunately NEVER had to alert the police while at home. But I feel just a bit safer because I can know I can text for help.
Here's a great reward for this horrible election season. If you voted,
