Police Announce New Non-emergency Number

If you have a non-emergency need for the Terrell Police Department, police ask that you call on the new non-emergency main number at 469-474-2700. This is a local call number and intended only for non-emergency police department related telephone calls. Naturally, in the case of an emergency for police, fire or emergency medical services, you call 9-1-1.

Police will permanently vacate the former police facility at 201 E. Nash Street on Monday, February 27th and move all police, detention, and emergency communications to the new Terrell Police Headquarters building, located at 1100 N. S.H. 34. The move will take two days, but police do not expect any significant disruptions of police services.
The Terrell Police Department also wants to announce the following new telephone numbers for non-emergency police operations:

  • Main Non-Emergency Number – 469-474-2700
  • Patrol Division Non-Emergency Number – 469-474-2630

Where can I get some?

There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don’t look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.

Fusce blandinvallis una, et fringilla metus

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.
