If you see a crime in progress, call the police!
Only call 911 from a land line! From a cell phone call 510-777-3211 which routes directly to OPD dispatch. To report a crime that has already happened, call the non-emergency number 510-777-3333, or fill in OPD's Online Crime Reporting form. You'll find the link on their Report a Crime page.
For MEDICAL OR FIRE EMERGENCIES ONLY, you can call the Fire Department directly at 510-444-1616. They may respond faster than OPD.
