WHEN DO YOU CALL 9-1-1

If you have an Emergency, do not hesitate to call 9-1-1

Always call 9-1-1 in the event of a true emergency (burglary, traffic accident, assault, kidnapping, missing person, suspicious vehicles or people, etc).  If you call the general office number of the LWTPD in the event of an emergency, you may not get an immediate response due to our officers being out on patrol.

Several people do not think they have a true emergency and don’t want to bother dispatchers and police after hours and on weekends.  However, that’s how you get police responses on the weekends and after hours.  Officers are patrolling during these times and the dispatchers have direct communication with patrol officers.

Please do not hesitate to call 9-1-1!
