The Communications Division disseminates calls for service for the Police Department, Fire and EMS, 911, Animal Control, and after hours calls for all City Services. Communications Operators are trained as Emergency Medical Dispatchers and follow strict protocol. In order to expedite the correct response, certain questions are required.
When you call the Police Department please give the address of the incident, your phone number and your name to the Communications Operator. All questions have relevance.
If you are planning a trip and will not be at home for an extended period of time, we invite you to request a Vacation Watch (PDF). The completed form must be delivered to the police department, along with photo identification.
To access police activity in your neighborhood or to retrieve an incident or accident report, go to P2C (Police-to-Citizen). Citizens may perform simple searches for police incidents and arrests, download reports, and obtain inmate information.
