FAQs

What number do I call to see or speak to a Police Officer?

Call 9-1-1 whenever you need to see or speak to a Police Officer. MLPD no longer utilizes a “non-emergency” phone number for contact with our Officers. MLPD does not have the luxury of having an Officer by a phone at the Police Station at all times. For several years, our community has relied on the Allegheny County 9-1-1 call center to answer our requests for service, triage & prioritize these calls and dispatch our Officers appropriately. Even if you would only like to speak to an Officer by phone, call 9-1-1 to initiate contact. The call taker will record your information and an Officer will be contacted to return your call. Please never hesitate to call 9-1-1. MLPD would rather be called to investigate without delay, then find out after the fact that a crime has already occurred and the actors are no longer on scene.
