A police emergency is any situation that requires immediate police response to protect life and/or property. These may include but are not limited to:
- Damage to property
- Motor Vehicle Accidents
Remain Calm & Remain on the Line
Try to remain calm while talking to the Dispatcher and stay on the line until they tell you it is ok to hang up. You may have to remain on the line until responding Law Enforcement arrives on the scene. Depending on the situation, the Dispatcher will be asking questions that will help ensure officer safety, public safety and your safety.
While obtaining information about the situation you will be asked if you and/or other people involved are safe. If the answer is no, they will try to help you to get yourself and others to a safer location.
