Crime prevention cannot be achieved by the police alone. Together professional law enforcement officers must work hand-in-hand with the public to fight crime and neighborhood disorder throughout our communities. As such, we depend heavily on your assistance in reporting crimes to the police.
Emergency: Call 911
Call 911 and ask for Police when:
Someone is badly injured or in danger
There's a serious risk to life or property
A crime is being committed and the offenders are still there or have just left
You've come across a major public inconvenience, such as trees blocking a highway
Any of these things are happening now or have just happened.
If you can't decide if it's a real emergency and you're still worried, call 911 and ask us. We'll help you work out what to do.
Non-Emergency: Contact Your Nearest Police Station
Phone or visit your nearest police station:
To report incidents or crimes that have already happened (e.g. theft) some time in the past and a rapid police response is not likely to affect the outcome
For general inquiries
Report rape or sexual assault
These are usually neighborhood nuisance
situations such as overgrown grass and plants, trash, or abandoned cars.
You will not receive a permanent case number.
