The City of Golden Valley Police Department (GVPD) is hosting it's first Coffee With A Cop of the year March 2, 9:30–10:30 am at Lunds & Byerlys (5725 Duluth St) in Golden Valley.
Officers and Community Service Officers will talk about the free service Smart911 and how it can help in the event of an emergency. When making an emergency call with a registered phone number, a personal profile is automatically displayed to the 911 call-taker, allowing dispatch to send the right response teams to the right location with the right information. Profiles can include:
- emergency contact information
- medical history, including medications, medical equipment, and medical conditions
- property layouts, access points, and utility information
- number of people and pets on the property, and more
Officers will also help community members navigate the Smart911 mobile app and create an account.
