INFORMATION YOU SHOULD KNOW
Please remember to call 911 if you see a crime in action. The non-emergency number is 385-5000 to report crimes after they have occurred or to report any suspicious activity.
Concerning dogs on the beach, the police department has responsibility for responding to calls concerning dogs on the beach. HOWEVER, manpower restrictions and low priority greatly reduce chance of timely response. If the problem continues or worsens, more calls more often and caller demand to see an officer may improve enforcement. Bottom line, don’t count on police response to dog related calls unless the caller aggressively insists that an officer respond.
Concerning graffiti or vandalism to cross walks, benches, etc., please call in any suspicious activity. Police need description of individuals, car description if applicable, license number, etc. Recently a citizen called in a suspicious car parked behind a shopping center. The caller gave a description of the vehicle. A responding officer saw the car and made a stop that resulted in three individuals being charge for graffiti.
311 connects you with the Public Information Office [staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days per year] who can assist with City information, services, etc. Cell phone users or callers from outside the city limits can dial (757) 385-3111 to reach them.
