OPD Telephone Directory
The Oakland Police Department telephone directory provides contact information. The directory is a living document, generally updated monthly. Make sure you have the latest version.
Problems or questions? Call (510)777-3333.
Call Priority - Why Does It Take So Long?
Every call is important. But to ensure that the greatest emergencies are handled as quickly as possible, OPD must follow this hierarchy of response:
- Potential danger for serious injury to persons, prevention of violent crimes, serious public hazards, felonies in progress with possible suspect on scene.
- Urgent, but not an emergency situation, hazardous / sensitive matters, in-progress misdemeanors and crimes where quick response may facilitate apprehension of suspect(s).
- Cold reports and non-emergencies.
- Non-emergency and/or information type reports which generally do not require a response by field units. (Oftentimes you can find the answers to these types of questions on the website.)
We appreciate your patience and understanding!
