How to contact the Chatham-Kent Police Service can be confusing, but we’re here to help! If you need to report a crime, initiate a police investigation, or have a concern addressed, you have several options:
📞 911: In case of emergencies or situations requiring immediate police assistance, dial 911. This line is for urgent matters that require an immediate response, such as a crime in progress, a threat to life or property, or a medical emergency.
☎️ Non-Emergency: For non-urgent situations or when you want to report a crime after the fact, you can call our Non-Emergency number at 519-352-1234. This line is available 24/7 and is suitable for situations that do not require an immediate response.
💻 Online: You can also report certain incidents online through our Citizen Online Reporting App. This option is suitable for non-emergency situations, such as minor theft, vandalism, or lost property. Please review the rules and guidelines on our website before submitting your report.
🏢 In Person: If you prefer to report in person or speak with an officer directly, you can visit one of our stations in Wallaceburg, Ridgetown, Blenheim, Tilbury, or our headquarters in Chatham. Our stations are open 24/7, and our staff will be there to assist you with your concerns and reports. CKPS Police Stations
By using these reporting options, our Communication Centre can gather all necessary information, create an incident, and assign an officer on duty. This ensures the officer has all the essential details to conduct a thorough investigation. The information you provide also contributes to proactive police initiatives like traffic blitzes.
Please note that reporting through our social media accounts or via an officer’s email is discouraged and not recommended. These channels are not monitored 24/7, and using them may lead to delays in addressing your concerns.
Your cooperation helps us maintain a safe and secure environment for everyone in Chatham-Kent.
