"it was interesting how they were strict on the kids and how they did well and how the school has improved. it was so instrumental in improving so many individuals, because without harbison, they would not have succeeded as they did." graduates from harbison got to ring the bell to conclude today's ceremonies. members of richland school district two are hoping a series of community conversations will open the lines of communication tonight the district met with members of the richland two community .

"as we began our research we began to see that there are some
simple text. but as that ability spreads to our area -- law enforcement's raising a red flag. wis's allie spillyards is here with a look at the good, the bad... and the warning dispatchers want you to take seriously. if you live in one of these two midlands counties, you can opt to text 911 rather than call. it's technology that could benefit a lot of people, but law enforcement is begging the majority of us not to use it. 2:48:50 "we were just in the middle of nowhere. kind of helpless i guess." yakesha means's first memories of hearing her father beat up her mom begin at just 3 years old.
to her screaming in the early morning hours." the abuse continued for years -- as did her feeling of isolation. 2:59 "i had to hope that somebody would come and help and do something this time. it never occurred to me to pick up our rotary phone." but now technology allows the tens of thousands like yakesha to get help through a discreet text. text to 911 first rolled out in 2014. it's quickly spreading and now available in midlands counties, including newberry. 22:30-22:47 "i thought this would be a way to reach the young generation, but as we began our research we began to see that there are some inherent flaws with non verbal communication that are difficult to overcome at this stage." one of their main concerns is
locating callers. right now, texts don't ping your location like actual phone calls do. in addition, typing takes time. 18:41-18:54 "asking 'where are you?' 'what is the problem?' you know those things that take a minute or less in a telephone conversation can take 5 or 7 minutes to collect that same information by text message." so i tested it out myself. my first message was sent, and then we waited. it took a full minute to appear in the dispatch system. and altogether, our conversation took more than 3 minutes to get to the point a dispatcher knew what kind of help to send and where to send them. and when seconds matter, law enforcement says that could be too long. 21:50-22:04 "we embrace technology. this isn't an attempt to discourage technology. the quicker we can respond to you, the faster help gets there, the
able to mitigate a situation." and while no one disagrees text to 911 offers unparalleled support for victims like yakesha... 3:59 "think about my mom, having to pick up the phone while he's right there. law enforcement says you should always call first. 23:49 "we don't want people to think this is the new answer for everything." when every second matters some would argue there will never be a reliable replacement for a good old fashioned phone call. here's the good news--todd johnson told me he believes improved technology is on the way, including the ability to locate texts. even then, he says a phone call should always come first when possible. the fcc echoes that. to learn more, you can find its text to 911 consumer guide under this story on our website, wis tv dot com. stay with us for morornews at 11. up next, we'll get a look at
