Released on Monday, February 20, 2017
Contact Information

Fort Collins Police are making it easier to remember their non-emergency phone number. Residents can now call 970-419-FCPD (3273) to reach City law enforcement. The line is staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, by Dispatch and Records personnel.

“The non-emergency number is the best avenue to ask questions and report issues that don’t rise to an urgent level,” said Greg Yeager, Deputy Chief of the Information Services Division. “However, we still strongly request that people call 9-1-1 if they’re experiencing an emergency or witnessing an active crime.”

Police Services implemented 419-FCPD in response to resident requests for a number that would be easier to memorize. The existing non-emergency number, 970-221-6540, will continue to remain active as well.
