Yes, and there is no charge. However, failure to obtain a permit from us could result in fines being levied. Fill out the Alarm Permit application and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions? Call 801-256-2000.
How do I find out the status/disposition of my police report?
If you would like information about the status or outcome of a police report that you made, call 801-256-2008. Using your case number, we will tell you the name of the investigator and give you his or her phone number. You may then call the investigator to discuss your case.
How do the police decide which calls to respond to first?
The dispatcher and police sergeant make the decision based on available information and their experience. Calls are given a priority code ranging from 1 to 9. An example of a priority 1 call would be a call where there are injuries, death, or a significant threat of injuries requiring immediate police response. An example of a priority 9 call would be a citizen who just needs to ask a police officer a question. Many times calls require two or more police officers and there may be several of these types of incidents occurring at one time. Please be patient and if the situation changes, you can call us back and give us any new information. Just like the emergency room at the hospital, calls are prioritized and are not always handled in the order they were received.
How do I report a non-emergency situation?
For non-emergency reports please call 801-840-4000 and speak with the dispatch center. This keeps the 9-1-1 lines open for emergencies.
Can I make an anonymous complaint or give an anonymous tip to the police?
Yes, to provide non-emergency information such as drug activity, or to provide tips for us to follow up on, please call 801-569-5111 and leave a voice mail. Please be specific as possible by providing dates, times, and locations if this information is available to you.
I have questions or concerns about a police officer’s actions. Is there someone I can call to discuss the matter?
These matters can usually be resolved by speaking to the officer’s supervisor. Please call 801-256-2000 and ask to speak with the officer’s supervisor. If you don’t know the officer’s name, you can tell us the date, time and location of the incident, and we can help you get in touch with the supervisor. If you are not satisfied with the result, you can come to the police station and complete a formal, written statement that will be forwarded to the lieutenant assigned to investigate these matters.
Are tours of the police department available or can I have a representative of the police department come speak to a group?
Yes, to both questions. Please call 801-256-2032 and speak with our Crime Prevention Unit to schedule an event. You can also visit the Crime Prevention page for more information.
