When should I call non-emergency?
- Reporting a crime with no suspect (example: theft of a license plate or bicycle)
- Reporting a crime with suspect, but the suspect is not on the scene (example: fraud)
- Reporting a serious crime with suspect, but with a lengthy delay (example: assault that occurred “last night” at a bar)
- Non-emergency in progress (example: noisy party)
- On-going crime issues or crimes that are not in-progress (examples: graffiti or ongoing drug dealing with no suspect on scene)

Tips for making your non-emergency call
- Try to report your non-emergency during the early morning or evening on a weekday to help limit your wait time
- Be ready with all relevant information when you call about your situation such as your exact address, driver’s license number or vehicle license plate number
- If you call 9-1-1 for a non-emergency matter, it will not result in a faster response as emergency operators will not take non-emergency reports on 9-1-1
- 9-1-1 call takers cannot transfer your call to the non-emergency line. You will be asked to hang-up and dial the ten-digit non-emergency number directly
The Akwesasne Mohawk Police encourages the community to report any suspicious activity or persons in the area. Anyone wanting to report a non emergency issue, please contact 613-575-2340.
