Reporting a Crime
If this is an emergency dial 9-1-1; otherwise, you can make a police report either in person or by calling the non-emergency line at (978) 283-1212 to have an officer respond to you. In the near future, you will be able to make some reports of crimes that occurred in the city via the internet.
When You Should Call 9-1-1
9-1-1 is for emergencies, potential emergencies or times when an emergency is imminent. Please follow the below guidelines to determine when 9-1-1 should be called:
- Ask yourself, “What is the level of urgency?”
- Is there a danger to life or property?
- Is the caller or someone else the victim of a crime?
- Do you have a police emergency?
- Does the caller or someone else have a medical emergency?
- Does the caller need the fire department?
If you call 9-1-1 by accident, do not hang up. Stay on the line and tell the dispatcher that everything is all right. If you don’t, the dispatcher may think that something is wrong and send a police officer.
