Network issue knocks out 911 service in Mississippi County

JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) -When Mississippi County residents dial 911 Friday they will be speaking to a dispatcher in Jonesboro.

Jeff Presley, Jonesboro & Craighead 911 director, said all calls to Mississippi County’s emergency service will be rerouted to the city of Jonesboro.

The problem has been isolated to an AT&T network issue, and crews are working to fix it, he said.

It is unknown how long it will take until the system is running again.
