Shelby County Government agencies, including the Mayor’s Office and Sheriff’s Office, have new telephone numbers.
All county agency offices at the Criminal Justice Center and the Vasco Smith, Jr. Administration Building, 160 North Main, now have new telephone numbers beginning with “222.”
The “222” numbers replaced several telephone exchanges that begin with 545, 377, 379, 544 and others. Most new numbers with prefix “222” also have four new digits assigned to them.
For several months, people who call the old county government numbers will get a recording for the new numbers.
The new “222” telephone numbers are also being used at the Shelby County Health Department offices on Jefferson. The Shelby County Corrections Center and other administrative offices on Mullins Station Road will have new telephone numbers in the next few months.
