Emergency Communications

Meriden's Emergency Communications Center handles all calls for Police, Fire, and EMS emergencies, calls for service, and general requests for information.  The Emergency Communications Center dispatchers are highly trained in obtaining up-to-date information, crisis management, and managing police and fire resources at multiple incidents.  There are currently 15 certified NCIC Telecommunicators on staff with 24-hour coverage. 

The Emergency Communications Center handles and directs all calls for service for the police department.  Dispatchers will collect vital information regarding each call and set a prioritized response if needed.

Callers should use 911 for urgent potential life-threatening EMERGENCY and for potential IMMEDIATE damage to property.

Callers are advised to consult our phone book for routine calls for other routine police matters or for the numbers to your local fire station as well as numbers to administration for the fire department and the local fire marshal office.

911 is for EMERGENCIES ONLY--please use it wisely.
