EGPD's 9-1-1 Program

The Elk Grove Police Department is testing a new program aimed at reducing the number of non-emergency 9-1-1 calls…. During the next few months the EGPD will be conducting local outreach to educate the public about the proper use of 9-1-1…...  Elk Grove Police Department will share information with the public at events and will also be advertising in print, radio, and online media, including public service announcements, online banner ads, posters, transit ads, and social media…...  Tip cards will also be distributed with information to help the public understand when to call 9-1-1, and where to call for situations that are not 9-1-1 emergencies….The thinking is that while most people know to use 9-1-1 only in an emergency this effort will go a long way in educating those who don’t.
