Wow, 911 was just easier! Oh well, let's program that number into our phones!
Effective Immediately -
Non Emergency issues (property crime, suspicious persons report,etc.) call 504-821-2222
Immediate danger (to yourself or someone else- assult, shooting,etc.) call 911
Callers may request anonymity when speaking w/an operator at either line.
In an effort to not overwhelm the systems resources...
Well let's just hope the 821-2222 line operaters are going through some customer service training and will actually answer the phone in a timely manner. They have NOT been the most pleasant or efficient people on the line in the past.
