When you need a police officer dispatched to the scene
always dial 9-1-1.
Do this even for a non-emergency event.
We understand that Dunwoody citizens are not used to using 911 or feel they are taking officers away from important calls. If you wish to have an officer dispatched to a location always dial 911, emergency or not. When an officer is on a low priority call and a serious call goes out, then he/she will leave the lower priority call to go assist.
- A suspicious vehicle in the eighborhood. (You know what is suspicious in your own neighborhood.)
- Suspicious people walking around or unpermitted solicitors.
- Damage to property reports. (Officers need to see and investigate the damage to do their report.)
- Motor vehicle accidents whether they are on private property or the roadway.
- Roadway hazards.
Many big cases have been solved because a citizen reported a suspicious vehicle in there
neighborhood, but that call has to be placed to 911 so officers can respond without delay.
(If you dial 911 by mistake, or if a child in your home dials 911 when no emergency exists, do not
hang up. That could cause 911 officials to think an emergency does exist. They may possibly
send responders to your location. Instead, simply explain to the call-taker what happened.)
