Martinsville-Henry County 911 Center

Getting this information out to the public through the CodeRED system is what led to the capture of this dangerous armed person. Within a couple of hours of our CodeRED alert going out, and the continuance of the IPAWS alert in the area, citizens identified the suspect as he walked up to a convenience store trying to blend into society and asking for a ride.

Within seconds our 911 Center received three different calls reporting the location of the suspect we were looking for, and officers quickly responded and took the suspect into custody. Without the ability to quickly inform the public of the emergency situation at hand through the CodeRED system and IPAWS integration, we would have likely not captured this suspect that night.
