911 Dispatch Center


When to call 911

Call 911 immediately if:

  • ​​You are witnessing an in-progress crime
  • You fear for your life or safety, or for that of another
  • You believe there is an imminent threat to property 

When calling, the Telecommunicator will ask the location where the incident is occurring. It is very important to know where you are and/or where the incident is occurring.  If you do not know the exact street address, the next best location is the closest intersection.  The Telecommunicator may ask you questions that you believe are irrelevant.  Trust in the Telecommunicator’s training and experience, and they will guide you through the information the police and fire departments need to get you the quickest and most helpful response. 

Non-Emergency Number 

"911" is used for emergency situations only.  If you have an emergency, you may dial "911" from either your cellular phone or a landline. For non-emergencies, you may contact the Lindenhurst Police Department at 847-356-5400.
