852-COPS
 

852-COPS is the Suffolk County Police Department’s non-emergency telephone number to be used to report incidents requiring a police response. Use of this number helps to ensure emergency calls receive priority handling, and that non-emergency calls are appropriately routed to call takers as they become available.

Please dial 852-COPS to report the following incidents:

  • Loud parties
  • Parking complaints
  • Prior incidents
  • Barking dogs, loud noise, and other disturbances
  • All other non-emergency situations that require a police officer respond.

852-COPS is not appropriate for the following incidents, as 9-1-1 should be called for:

  • Crimes in progress
  • Life-threatening emergencies
  • Fire or medical emergencies
  • Other actual emergencies

Requests for general information:

Please do not call precinct desks for matters that require a police officer respond. Instead dial 9-1-1 in an emergency, or 852-COPS for non-emergency police response. Requests for general information (not requiring a police response) should be directed to precinct desks (Click here for Phone Directory) or by calling (631) 852-6000.

Report tips regarding crimes previously committed by dialing 1-800-220-TIPS. Rewards may be available!
