Reporting a Crime
All emergency incidents should be reported by calling 9-1-1. For non-emergency situations or to file a police report, please call police Dispatch at 925-284-5010. Depending on staffing levels, call priority, and activity, there may be a delay before an officer is dispatched to assist you. Non-urgent reports may be also made at the Police Department. However, an officer may need to be called back to the station to meet with you. Depending upon the nature of the report, an officer may need to respond to the scene of the incident to investigate. It is our goal to provide you with the most efficient and prompt service possible.
9-1-1 can be called from a cell phone. It is also recommended that the direct dispatch line (925-284-5010) be saved as a contact in your cell phone.
