The Hispanic Hotline is a resource for the Spanish speaking community to voice concerns and problems. There are some parts of the Hispanic community in every town, city and county who don’t feel comfortable and safe to call the police. The Bluffton Police Departments wants everyone to feel safe and to have an avenue to speak to an officer. The hotline can be utilized as an anonymous tip line or it can be a resource for Hispanics who need immediate help and otherwise aren’t able to call 911 because of the language barrier.
The hotline is a voicemail system that alerts one of Bluffton Police Department’s Spanish speaking officers as soon as a message is left. That officer then translates the message and sends it to the proper Sergeant on duty. The number to the Hispanic Hotline is 843-706-7806. Anyone calling and needing a response will receive help.
