If you’ve been having trouble reaching the Tucumcari non-emergency phone number for Quay County’s police and fire dispatch center at either 461-2160 or 461-2280, it’s because of an issue involving telephone networks, according to Scot Jaynes, dispatch manager.
Central Dispatch is trying to resolve the issue, which may cause land line phone customers to receive a disconnected message when they dial 461-2160 or 461-2280. Jaynes said the issue has been occurring off and on since Monday evening.
An alternate number, 461-2281, has been set up to receive calls from land line customers, or you can contact central dispatch by cell phone.
We will post more information as it becomes available.
