911 callers are not required to give their name/address/phone number to the dispatcher. You will never be forced to give your personal information. However, please keep in mind there may be times when officers/dispatchers require additional information from you after the call is disconnected (ex: more specific information to identify a location or update information that will affect an officer’s response). This is the main reason you will be asked to provide your name and call-back number.
If you choose to remain anonymous, it will not change the officer’s/deputy’s response to your call. All calls (911 and non-emergency) to the Communications Center are recorded. These recordings are held for a set period of time in case they are needed in a later investigation.
