Prosser-area phone line to call deputies repaired

Problems with a nonemergency line from the Prosser area to Benton County Emergency Services have been fixed, officials said.

Benton County residents in the Prosser area can once again dial 786-2112 to contact sheriff's deputies through the non-emergency dispatch line, said spokeswoman Sara Schwartz.

The line went down for unknown reasons Friday and Prosser residents had to use an alternate number.

Calls to 911 or the non-emergency number to Prosser police were not affected.
