When to call 911
Return to Blog 

We are fortunate to live in a well police and safe region. You can report crimes online, in person, via a non-emergency phone number (519) 570-9777 or in emergency only 911.

The 911 service for Waterloo Region is run through the Waterloo Regional Police. 911 is an EMERGENCY service. When you call 911 you will be greeted with “911 What is your emergency?”. The dispatcher will ascertain the nature of your emergency (crime, medical, or fire) and will then also advise the other services required to dispatch to your emergency. They will take your personal information and the location you are at. If you call on a cell phone, they will take that number as well.

You can be charged for making crank calls to 911.
