The Saitama Prefecture Police Office established the emergency text message system. With the system, persons who are Deaf/hard of hearing or with speech disability can put down text messages through the chat method on the Internet.

The police staff and those who inform communicate in real time about the situation of an accident, damage and the site, etc. The police communication instruction section staff said, "the new system will lead to the rapid deployment."

A new system can be used from the computer or cellular phone.
