To request the dispatch of public safety first-responders to a non-emergency situation, dial the non-emergency dispatch telephone number, 301-352-1200. Calling the non-emergency dispatch number allows emergency 9-1-1 calls to be processed quickly while allowing the 9-1-1 Center to efficiently process non-emergency, non-urgent situations that require the dispatch of public safety officials.
To report a non-threatening suspicious person, vehicle, or situation
A loud party or noise complaint
Vandalism or property damage
To report that you were a victim of a crime that happened in the past and the suspect is no longer on the scene
The same people answering calls to the non-emergency dispatch number are also responsible for answering 9-1-1 calls. As a result, there may be a delay in answering calls on the non-emergency dispatch number. Please note, the non-emergency dispatch number is not equipped to accept text messaging.
