A note from the Dunwoody Police about who to call:
We are unable to dispatch cars from our office. When someone calls our office or headquarters, we either #1. Contact Dekalb 911 to have an officer dispatched, or #2. Contact the supervisor on duty who sends a unit out. Both of these can create an extended delay. We encourage everyone to use 911 when they need an officer.
Here are a few
examples of when to call 911:
The non emergency number to Dekalb dispatch is answered by the same 911 call takers. The drawback to the non emergency number is that it can ring once or 100 times before it is answered because it is considered non-priority. We understand that Dunwoody citizens are not used to using 911 or feel they are taking officers away from important calls. If an officer is on a low priority call and a serious call goes out, then he will leave the low priority call to go assist.
There are a lot of big cases solved because of a citizen reporting a suspicious vehicle in their neighborhood, but that call has to be placed to 911 so officers can respond without delay.
