General Information and Reminders

  • E911 employees cannot give callers legal advice. If you do call 911 for legal advice, we will offer to send you a police officer, direct you to call the police station during business hours or to seek legal counsel from an attorney.
  • If you dial 911 by mistake you should stay on the line to verify with dispatch that there is no problem. If you decide to hang up, a uniformed police officer will be dispatched to your location.
  • Make sure your children know their address and phone number.
  • Your house number should be clearly posted and visible from the street either day or night.
  • Post your phone number, address and directions to your address by your family phones.
  • If you are traveling, pay attention to your location and your surroundings. If you dial 911 while traveling, your call will be routed to the E911 center that is responsible for the county, parish or municipality that you are in.
