Crime prevention cannot be achieved by the police alone. Law enforcement officers must work hand-in-hand with the public to fight crime throughout our communities. As such, we depend heavily on your assistance in reporting crimes to the police. If you have been a victim of a crime, please report it. We understand it's never easy, but if crimes are left unreported, then in effect we've given criminals a free ticket to commit more crime, damaging both individuals and communities again and again.
In an emergency you should always dial 911. Use this service to contact police in situations when you need an immediate response - if a crime is happening now or if someone is in immediate danger. 911 Emergency Response also dispatches calls for the fire department and ambulance services, so please be clear about which service you need when you call.
Please do not call 911 for non-emergencies. Instead, contact the Ogden City Police Department for non-emergencies at 801-395-8221. This number is answered by a live person 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Reporting Crime in Person
Crimes committed within Ogden City limits may be reported in-person at the Francom Public Safety Center. The person reporting the crime will be asked to provide details of the crime and make a formal statement about the facts of the case. Afterwards, a case reference number is provided for use in tracking progress of the case and for making insurance claims.
Reporting Crime Anonymously
Residents are encouraged to dial 801-399-HELP (4357) to provide information about their own neighborhoods that may assist police officers in resolving issues. This number will reach a live respondent during regular business hours who will track requests until the caller is satisfied or callers may request a follow-up call to relay what action the City has taken toward resolving the issue. This City Help line is a great tool for providing anonymous tips and for reporting and receiving live help for a non-emergency crime.
