Instructions from the BPD for Making an Emergency Call

For any emergency – defined as you need a police car to come – immediately call:

9-1-1 (From a landline)
617-343-4911 (From a cell phone)

Note: 9-1-1 calls from a cell phone go to the State Police. When they answer you should ask to be transferred to the Boston Police. Put the 617-343-4911 number on speed-dial on your cell phone to reach the BPD directly.

Call the above numbers to report suspicious activity not people. Remember, it is what is happening that indicates possible illegal or criminal activity, not what people look like.

Emergencies include something as relatively minor as your driveway blocked, a fire hydrant blocked, or a loud party to something as major as a fight with weapons, someone breaking into a house or a car, or gunshots.

When you call it is important to describe what is happening in simple, direct terms. Do not use “I think,” “maybe,” or other nonspecific terms. Do give as detailed a description as possible of people and cars. Be sure to mention the direction of travel of those leaving the scene. Remember to remain calm.

Monthly Community Meetings

These meetings are held the first Thursday of every month at 7:30 P.M. at the District E13 Community Room located at 3345 Washington Street. For more information, call 617-343-5624.
