How does CodeRED work?

CodeRED is a telephone notification system that can dial up to 60,000 phones an hour and deliver a recorded message. The detective division can use a digital map online to define an area that requires a message and CodeRED will automatically target all of the phone numbers in that defined area for the emergency message. When the detective initiates the notification, the recorded message is “blasted” to all the phones in the defined area in a very brief period. Busy numbers will be redialed a preset number of times. CodeRED also has the ability to store predefined lists of names and phone numbers that can be activated for specific notifications.

Although CodeRED can leave a message on a telephone answering instrument you may not receive the message because of noise levels on the recorder and the length of the prerecorded message.
