Call the Police First!

PD FYI.png

There is apparently misinformation on social media channels that question who you should call to report suspicious activity or criminal activity. The first call that you should make is to your local police department. When you call a friend or family member, post it on Facebook, Snapchat or Twitter, it only delays the appropriate response from law enforcement. It could mean the difference between stopping a crime and responding to take a report of a crime after it’s too late. Call your local police department first!

 

Once dispatchers take your telephone call, or 9-1-1 text if unable to call, they will assess your situation and get the appropriate help on the way whether it is police, fire or emergency medical services. This is the proper way to react to a potential suspicious, criminal or emergency situation, whether it is in progress or not.

 

Law enforcement agencies typically do not monitor web pages or social media channels on a continuous basis. In Apache Junction and the surrounding area, there are emergency 9-1-1 operators available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to help you. Posting on social media should always be after the appropriate agency has been alerted and responded. While being a great source of communication, social media is not always the most accurate source and is truly not the one to report an emergency to first!

 

If you should have any additional questions or would like more information, please contact the AJPD Community Resource Coordinator at (480) 474-5442 or cru@ajcity.net.
