Call the Right Number to Get the Right Help in Hollywood
December 29, 2022
Broward County’s Regional Communications System provides critical tools to our law enforcement and fire rescue community. The same call-takers and dispatchers that answer emergency calls to 911, also answer the police and fire non-emergency number (954.764.4357).
Unnecessary calls to the non-emergency number increases the load on staff that is relied upon to respond quickly and accurately to true emergency calls. Help to reduce the number of unnecessary calls by knowing what number to call. In an emergency, call 9-1-1.
For instances that require law or fire/EMS dispatch but do not require an immediate response call: 954.764.4357. The police and fire non-emergency number is not to be used to obtain general information, request a police report, or report code compliance issues. It should be used to report a minor vehicle accident with no injuries or hazards, report identity theft, or report stolen items when a suspect is not on the scene.
