On May 14, 2014, a statewide deployment of Text-to-911 was implemented through the Texty platform. This project enables direct access to emergency service for an underserved segment of Indiana’s pollutions, those that are deaf or speaking-impaired. Texty also allows 911 centers to convert voice calls to text sessions if the situation requires it. Indiana has the ability, via the IN911 system to Text-from-911 to the public. This service has improved communication capabilities between 9-1-1 centers and the general public.
On June 6, 2016, the Treasurer of State, Kelly Mitchell, announced the completion of the Text-to-911 deployment to all 92 counties in Indiana.
