How to Report Problems to the Sheriff

RCA is continually urging you to report crimes or suspicious activities to the Sheriff’s Department so we can help keep problem here to a minimum. But please know the right way to do that, otherwise a response can be delayed and more harm may happen.

If you see a crime in progress or a person in danger, call 874-5111, which is the direct line to Sheriff’s dispatch (faster even than 911). Be prepared with location details as well as a clear description of the problem.

If you see suspicious activity or a problem that is not a life threatening emergency or then active (e.g. evidence of a recent break-in or theft) call 874-5115, which also goes directly to Sheriff’s dispatch but not on the immediate emergency line; it may take a few minutes to reach the operator, so be patient. And again, have the location and description details.

While we have an active POP Officer (Problem Oriented Policing) for Rosemont, he is only on duty certain hours and is NOT the person to report a problem to, except as an after-the-fact informational report and indicating that you have already made a proper report to Sheriff’s dispatch. It may be days before the POP Officer even gets your call; all he can do then is to note the incident and see if it is part of a larger problem.

So help us keep Rosemont safe by properly and effectively reporting problems as quickly as you can.
