Your police department needs your help! We ask that you immediately call 911 to report crime and suspicious activity.
We often find that residents are hesitant to report crimes or suspicious activity because they:
• Believe that their observation is not important enough to call 911
• Feel that they are bothering the police department
• Are simply uncomfortable using 911.
We would like to remind you that you should not hesitate to call 911 anytime you observe crime or suspicious activity and to remember that your police & fire departments are here to assist you.
You should dial 911 anytime you need a Police Officer, Firefighter, or Paramedic to respond to your location! 911 is not just for emergencies, it should also be used to report activity such as animal complaints, loud disturbances, and SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY! Suspicious activity includes strange vehicle(s) in the area or strange person(s) in the neighborhood, such as someone you don’t recognize as belonging in the neighborhood or area that appears to have no apparent reason or purpose for being there.
What may seem to be a non-emergency may become an emergency very quickly, so please call right away!
Report as many details as possible to the dispatcher, vehicle description (color, make, model, license plate number, etc.), direction of travel, as well as suspect information (male/female, physical description, clothing, etc.) and any other information you can remember!
MOST IMPORTANT… STAY ON THE PHONE WITH A DISPATCHER UNTIL THEY TELL YOU IT IS OK TO HANG UP.
Please dial 911 if there is an emergency, but also remember to dial 911 if there’s something suspicious as well! We need your to help to reduce crime in our community.
Together we will make a difference!
