Any time you need a Police, Fire or Medical response you should dial 9-1-1. The dispatcher will ask you where your emergency is and what is happening. Please remain calm when talking to the dispatcher. Remember … when calling 9-1-1 it is very important to stay on the phone, even if 9-1-1 was dialed in error. The dispatcher is required to verify where the call is coming from and if an emergency exists. If you hang up, a police officer will be sent to the location the 9-1-1 computer provides.
If you are in Dakota County, call 9-1-1 for all non-emergencies. Dispatchers at the Dakota Communications Center will route callers to the appropriate person to speak with. Non-emergencies include abandoned cars, lost or found property, non-injury accidents, vandalism, and other crimes not in progress. Calling 9-1-1 does not interrupt emergency response or distract from urgent calls. It is structured to handle all types of public safety concerns. We encourage you to call 9-1-1 anytime you feel unsafe or suspicious of activity you are witnessing. If you are outside of Dakota County, call 952-322-2323.
You can submit a request to Police for police-related public data through our online system.
