Mint Hill police dispatch will be handled by Pineville starting Monday

Beginning Monday, calls for Mint Hill police will be routed through Pineville Police Department.

Mint Hill Capt. Scott Hall said the switch is a cost-saving measure that will help provide faster service.

Calls from Mint Hill for emergency police service are currently dispatched through Charlotte and Matthews. Now, Pineville will alert Mint Hill directly of emergency police calls. Hall said 911 calls for fire and/or Medic will be forwarded by Pineville to the correct center for emergency dispatch.

Mint Hill has used Pineville’s dispatching capabilities in the past and Hall said they continue to offer a lower per-call rate.

Anyone with questions about the new service can contact Mint Hill Police Department: 704-545-1085.

New emergency numbers effective July 1:

For emergencies: 911.

Non-emergencies: 704-889-2231.

Alarm calls: 704-889-0101.

Alarm questions: 704-545-1085.
