  • How do I report a crime?

    Emergencies Requiring Immediate Police Assistance Call 9-1-1

    Only call 9-1-1 when immediate police assistance is required; such as for assaults, kidnapping, burglaries, domestic disputes, or auto accidents with injuries. When calling 9-1-1 be prepared to give an address, cross streets or notable landmarks. Answer all questions completely but as briefly as possible. Stay on the line until the operator terminates the call. If the situation changes before help arrives, call 9-1-1 again and update the operator.
