Update: January 5 at 7:24 PM
Miami Shores PD have announced that inbound phone lines to their station have been repaired after a nearly hour and a half outage.
The announcement was made on social media.
In a thread on the Nextdoor App, Shores resident Michael Morejon asked village spokesperson Elizabeth Keeley how it was possible for a police station to lose phone service.
“This was an AT&T issue and the cause is still being addressed,” Keeley said.
Original Story from earlier in the day:
A Miami Shores spokesperson said that the inbound phone lines are down for the Miami Shores Police Department.
The reason for the problem was not announced nor was the expected time for the lines to be repaired.
It is not clear whether the lines being out were related to overnight power outages reported around Miami Shores.
The announcement was made via the Nextdoor app by Miami Shores Communications Specialist Elizabeth Keeley.
“Police Department phone lines are currently down,” the advisory read. “Please be advised that the inbound phone lines to the Miami Shores Police Department are currently down. Please contact Miami-Dade Police at 305-476-5423 or 911 who will forward the requests for assistance until our phone lines are restored.”
