KPD Social Distancing Efforts

In an effort to minimize the potential of virus exposure for our officers and the community that we serve, dispatch is currently screening non-emergency calls to determine if a report can be completed over the phone. As a reminder, anytime you wish to speak with an officer or report a non-emergency incident (including animal control issues), please call dispatch at 817-478-5416. This call may be answered as if you had called 9-1-1. Please do not hang up.
