The OUPD operates a state-of-the-art dispatch operations center staffed by highly trained police personnel. These individuals handle emergency calls for police, fire and emergency medical assistance, as well as non-emergency calls and inquires.
How do I reach OUPD in an emergency?
What if I dial 911 by mistake?
DO NOT hang up the telephone. Instead, wait on the line until you make contact with the Dispatcher. If you hang up, the Dispatcher is required to call you back. If you cannot be contacted a Police Officer will be dispatched to your location.
