Starting 6 a.m., Sunday, Sept. 30, in conjunction with the new communications service provided to Maricopa residents, a new non-emergency dispatch number for the City of Maricopa Police Department has been created. The new non-emergency Police Department Dispatch number will be (520) 568-3MPD, which is (520) 568-3673.
There will be no change in the emergency number, 9-1-1. The Police Department encourages citizens to continue using 911 for emergency situations only. The administrative number (to contact records, request a tow hearing, ask a question about a report already filed, etc.) will aso stay the same (520) 316-6800. The administrative number is only staffed from Monday thru Friday, 7:00 am to 6:00 pm. All other calls requiring police response can be handled by calling the new non-emergency number. In order to facilitate a smooth transition, the Police Department is recommending all residents make a note of the new dispatch number, (520) 568-3MPD, and its effective date.
