HENDERSON, Ky. (01/07/14) - The Henderson Police Department is currently updating the emergency code number system for all businesses within the city.
In 2007, officers went to every business within the city of Henderson and assigned an emergency code number to that business. The emergency code number is on a sticker which is placed in a highly visible location at the business, generally the front door. If officers respond to that business after hours due to an emergency, they can give 911 Dispatchers the emergency code number to get contact information for the business owners and/or managers. This allows officers to make contact with the owners/managers to better handle any situation that may arise at the business.
