The Staff of the Dayton Police department is committed to giving the highest level of service for every call and every crime reported.
Contacting the Police Department
The Police department receives numerous non-emergency calls for service to the office. If you are looking to have an officer take a report or need assistance, please contact them through 911. This is the best way to ensure a prompt response as there is not always someone in the office available to take your call. You may also direct non-emergency calls through dispatch at 952-258-5321.
