When to call 911 or the Police Department Non-Emergency Number
Most people know to call 911 for police, fire and medical emergencies. But don't hesitate to call 911 for things you might not consider an “emergency,” but still may require a police officer or other agency to take action immediately. If something is happening in real-time, call 911. This could be suspicious activity near you, a downed tree over a roadway, a noise complaint, an erratic driver, a road rage incident, etc.
If you have an issue or question for something that happened in the past, or something that does not require an immediate response, call the non-emergency line at 425-888-3333. Monday through Friday business hours you will first reach the Records Unit who will connect you to Dispatch.
