Non-Emergency Number

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
