Pineville to handle Mint Hill police calls

All 911 calls for Mint Hill police will be dispatched by the Pineville Police Department, starting July 1, officials in Mint Hill say.

The change will speed the process of handling emergency calls and will save money for Mint Hill, police Capt. Scott Hall says.

He says 911 calls currently are answered by Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police, who then forward the call to Matthews Police for dispatch. By contracting with Pineville police to answer the 911 calls, the process of dispatching a Mint Hill police officer will be speeded up.

The change will affect all calls from the public, whether residential or business.

“We think this will expedite our response,” Hall says. “The people of Mint Hill should benefit from this. Plus, it will save some money.”
