Can I call a police station directly?
Yes! There are many instances when you only need a question answered, provide information or return a call to a representative of the department. In most cases these calls are best made Monday through Friday during normal business hours. These numbers are frequently listed in the blue pages of your Bell Atlantic telephone directory.

It is important to remember never to use a business number to report an emergency. Many police, fire and emergency medical stations are not staffed at various times of the day and night.
