New Castle County Police Remind Citizens of When to Call 9-1-1
New Castle County Police and Government Officials would like to remind citizens to call 9-1-1 in emergency situations only.
New Castle County residents can use 302-573-2800 for non-emergency police related situations, so that the 9-1-1 lines will be available for true in-progress or life threatening situations.
The non-emergency number is an ideal way for residents or visitors to report events that do not need an immediate response by a public safety agency.
Police would also like to remind citizens that the following are non-emergency police numbers for Kent and Sussex County in Delaware:
Kent County: 302-739-4863

With the arrival of “Hurricane Sandy” we ask that the public contact the
Delaware Helpline at (800) 464-4357,
The New Castle County non emergency call center at (302) 395-5555
The City of Wilmington’s Emergency Operation Center at (302) 576-CITY (2489),
With any storm related questions. Also, updated information will be available on the Delaware Emergency Management Agency (DEMA) website at dema.delaware.gov
