DIAL 911 IF YOU HAVE AN EMERGENCY!!!

The Burlington Police Department's Dispatch/ Communications Center is a 24-hour a day, 7 days a week center. Operations of the center are managed by Stephanie Chatman. The Police Technology Manager, Kenyon Harris, ensures the Communications Center is up to date with any new or upcoming technology. The center functions as a vital link between the city's police and fire departments and those who need emergency and non-emergency assistance.

The center is equipped with state of the art technology in order to maintain our commitment of professional, quality service to the citizens of Burlington. We handle over 128,000 incoming calls and dispatch over 88,000 calls (both police and fire) annually.

If any citizen needs the police department's non-emergency services, we request they call (336) 229-3500, which goes directly to the communications center. If you are experiencing an emergency, please dial 911 immediately!

Communications staff is also available to provide tours and talk to the public regarding how and when to properly utilize the 911 system. Contact Stephanie Chatman to schedule your group.
