The Shoreline Police Department
says "When in doubt call 911"

From the Shoreline Police department


When do I call 911?

For anything happening right now, or medical emergencies, call 911.

Some examples are:

  • A burglary in progress
  • You see someone stealing mail out of mailboxes in your neighborhood
  • Someone is getting assaulted
  • Any suspicious activity currently taking place
  • Someone is needing medical help

If you are unsure of whether or not it is an emergency, just call 911. The call receivers will triage your call and transfer you to a non-emergency line.

You never need to worry when calling that you are tying up 911 phone lines.

When in doubt call 911!
