The TRS line is staffed seven days a week, 6 AM through 10:30 PM. Depending on the existing call load, you may be asked to leave your name, phone number, a brief description of the incident, the best time to reach you, and any alternative phone numbers you may have. A TRS operator should contact you within 24-48 hours. There are a few events that happen during the year where this time could be extended to 72 hours.

When should you call 911? 

• When the suspect is still in the area.
• You or another person has physical injuries.
• When there is evidence to collect. Evidence might include:

      • Items left behind by the suspect
