9-1-1 Emergency Phone Numbers

If you have an emergency dial 9-1-1.

Non-Emergency Phone Numbers

Non-emergency lines are for crimes that require police response, but that are non-life threatening: loud parties, a group of juveniles loitering in front of your home, neighbor disputes, etc.

The non-emergency dispatch number is (573) 442-6131. Our area code for all calls is (573).

Life Threatening Emergencies or Crimes in Progress Dial 9-1-1

The purpose of the Joint Communications Information Center 9-1-1 Emergency Telephone System is to provide for the immediate response of Officers, Fire, or Medical personnel for emergency occurrences. To accomplish this, it is imperative that the calls received on 9-1-1 lines be restricted to those situations that require immediate dispatching of Police Officers, Paramedics, or Fire Department personnel.

You do this by simply waiting for a dial tone on your telephone, cellular phone, or public telephone, then dial 9-1-1. No money is needed for calling 9-1-1 from a pay phone. If there is an emergency, you can pick up a pay phone, wait for a dial tone, and dial 9-1-1 without depositing a coin.

When Calling 9-1-1

  • Stay calm. Give your location, the nature of the emergency, and your name
  • Listen carefully to the 9-1-1 call-taker
  • Answer the 9-1-1 call-taker's questions as accurately as possible. Speak clearly and slowly
  • Do exactly as the 9-1-1 call-taker tells you during the course of the call
  • Never hang up on the 9-1-1 call-taker until you are told to do so
  • Non-Emergency situations - (573) 442-6131
