OPERATOR! QUICK! GIVE ME THE NUMBER FOR 911!

Homer Simpson uttered that classic line on an episode of The Simpsons
but he is not the only one confused about contacting local law
enforcement.

For an emergency needing an immediate response, we all know to call
911. But what about reporting a burglary after the fact, or locating a

towed car? Who do you call? This list of numbers will let you know
where
to direct your call in non-emergency situations, thereby preserving
911
for true emergencies.

** Dial 911 for all emergencies needing immediate police response
(threats to life and property, crimes in progress, car accidents,
fires,
and injuries).
** For non-emergencies needing a police response, call 215-4010 or
215-7450.
** Use KPD Teleserve Unit at 215-7268 to make crime reports over the
phone.
** The Drug Crime hot line is 215-7212.

Dial 311 for non-law enforcement issues, such as cracked sidewalks,
pot
holes, abandoned cars or houses, un-kept yards, fire hazards, and city

park problems.
