Don't let non-emergencies compete with real ones9-1-1 is for emergencies where health, safety or property is in immediate jeopardy, or there is a crime in progress. If you need police assistance that is not of an emergency nature (e.g. your situation is a valid police matter but does not require immediate attention), please use your local ten digit non-emergency numbers.
Find your local non-emergency number and learn more.
The culprits in your purse and pockets cause hundreds of accidental 9-1-1 calls every day. Please help us prevent these calls – you can start by watching our 9-1-1 culprits video:
