The Station Officer is a civilian employee who works the front counter in the lobby of the Police Department. The Station Officer assists the public in directing them to the appropriate person to handle their needs. The Station Officer also documents certain misdemeanor reports, property damage traffic collisions and signs the "certification of corrections" for equipment citations.
The Police Department is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The Station Officer or Desk Officer may assist you at the front counter in the Police Department from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. At other times, it may be necessary to have a field officer return to the Police Department to take your report.
Although most crimes and incidents may be reported at the Police Department, it's preferred that an officer respond to the scene as soon as possible during or after the crime/incident has occurred. If you are undecided whether to come into the Police Department in person or to phone the Police Department for an officer to respond to your location, it's better to phone first and we will advise you of the best course of action. Phone 911 for immediate police response in emergency situations. Phone 897-2351 for the Station Officer.
