This is useless. Call any one of those numbers and the response will be: "call 911"

These local precincts won't do squat when you call the local numbers. Trust me, I've tried many times. The answer is always the same, "call 911"

Which is honestly insane, 911 should be for emergencies and time-sensitive issues only.

Yeah and in this city they have you call 911 for illegal parking. It’s nuts. Probably because 311 is inept.

Wrong. Most of these precincts do not pick up the phone. The few that do then tell you to call 911.

Often it is, but once they were able to tell me where my car had been courtesy at least. 3rd District.

Is this a hotel? Why no 13th?

They skip quite a few numbers.

10, 13, 20-21, 23, 27-34, 36-38, 40-76

They also wreck the phone number format on the Airport division. It isn’t a valid number.

It's saying they have two numbers... the first six are the same, but one of them ends with 7,and one ends with 8.

911 is a lot easier to remember, and to dial.

This is objectively horrible to keep on hand. You will not get anyone dispatched to save you by calling the police department- that’s literally not how this works! Call 911 if you need someone dispatched.

When did I say to use it for a 911 dispatch?


Disastrous-Spray6290 t1_itd5bns wrote

Literally the top of the sign says to use it to stop a crime or save a life. That’s not at all what you should do in that situation.

Yes. Stop just raising your hand and get informed.
