Priority of Calls


The Dispatch Center receives a variety of calls, which may vary from a simple request for information to a report of a life threatening incident, the dispatcher must ask specific questions to accurately prioritize the call and assign it to a police officer, or direct your call to the appropriate resource. The amount of time it takes to obtain this information determines how quickly an officer is able to respond.

When requesting service for non-emergency situations, we ask for your patience in waiting for the arrival of a police officer, as emergency calls have priority. The officer will respond to your call as soon as possible.
