Should I call 911 or the non-emergency number when I need the Police?

Please call 911 only when you have a bona fide emergency or when you have no way of obtaining our phone number (example: when you are in your car calling from a cellular phone). Otherwise, please keep our number near your phone for other times when you need to contact the police. Be aware that occasionally there is only one person manning our phones and dispatching fire and police calls. Calls must be prioritized depending upon what is occurring in the city. We apologize if you are put on hold.

Try not to call the Police Department if there is an interruption in your electric or other utilities. The Police Department is inundated with calls during these times and may not able to tell you when FPL will restore your service.
