Emergency operators at the Sacramento Police Department Communications Center are now directly getting 9-1-1 calls from cells phone in a limited part of South Natomas, so the response time should be faster.  All other 9-1-1 cell calls will still be answered by the CHP then routed to Sac PD.

This the first phase of a program to upgrade 9-1-1 response time for cell calls througout the city, though an exact schedule for the complete citywide upgrade hasn't been announced by police.  The cost of this program is paid for with Measure U funds.
