UPDATE: Delaware State Police say 911 cell subscribers in Kent and Sussex Counties are experiencing difficulties

DELWARE — On Monday night, Delaware State Police say residents in Kent and Sussex Counties experienced a brief interruption in service. Police say 911 services were fully restored just before 11:15 p.m.

Police have not yet revealed what’s caused the interruption in service. On September, 28th, seven days prior, a similar incident occurred, when Delaware State Police Dispatch Centers experienced a brief statewide interruption in service.
