Dudley Police Dept. corrects phone book misprint

Updated:

DUDLEY, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) -- Due to a phonebook misprint, the Dudley Police Department is asking residents to update the department's non-emergency number with the correct version, 508-943-4411.

The department's non-emergency number was listed as 508-949-4411 in the 2012-2013 South County edition of "Yellow Book," but the correct number to call for business purposes in Dudley is 508-943-4411.

The misprint has caused deal of confusion and frustration, and the book's publishers will make the appropriate changes in the new edition which will be out in the spring of 2014.

The Dudley Police Department is asking everyone to check their directories to insure that the appropriate emergency numbers are listed.
