In case of an emergency, call 911. 

When you call 911, you will be connected to a central dispatch center staffed by trained professionals who can quickly assess your situation and send the appropriate emergency services to your location. This may include police, fire, or medical services, depending on the nature of the emergency.

Using the 911 system ensures that your call is prioritized and that emergency services can be dispatched as quickly as possible. This can be especially important in situations where every second counts, such as a medical emergency or a crime in progress.

We encourage all community members to familiarize themselves with the 911 system and use it to report emergencies and access emergency services. If you have any questions or concerns about the 911 system, please don't hesitate to contact the Tioga Police Department.


For non-emergent services, call 701-713-3355

If you have a situation that does not pose an immediate threat to life or property but still requires police assistance or information, we encourage you to use our non-emergency number. You can reach our central dispatch by calling this number, where trained professionals will be ready to assist you.

The non-emergency number serves as a convenient alternative to 911 for situations that require police attention but are not urgent emergencies. This includes reporting non-violent crimes, filing a police report, seeking information or advice, reporting suspicious activities, or inquiring about community services.

When using the non-emergency number, please remember to provide clear and concise information about the nature of your call. This will help our dispatchers assess the situation accurately and determine the appropriate response. If your situation escalates to an emergency during the call, our dispatchers can quickly transfer you to 911 for immediate assistance.

The non-emergency number provided by the Tioga Police Department is a valuable resource that ensures our officers can focus on emergency situations while still being accessible to community members who require their assistance. Please save this number for non-emergency situations: 701-713-3355.

We encourage residents and community members to use the non-emergency number responsibly and reserve 911 for true emergencies where immediate response is required. Together, we can ensure the efficient and effective delivery of police services in our community.
