Newport Police Department Publishes New Non-Emergency Dispatch Telephone Number
The Newport Police Department has a new public use, non-emergency dispatch telephone number (541) 574-5807. This number will be unique to Newport Police dispatch requests for officer response and crime reporting of incidents that do not meet criteria for utilizing the 911 emergency line.
The implementation of this unique Newport Police telephone number will allow our dispatch center, the Willamette Valley Communications Center (WVCC), to better serve Newport residents with efficient dispatching of Police resources. This will provide our citizens with a direct line to WVCC for Newport Police response requests. The direct line will provide additional detail of call volume and service levels WVCC is providing for the Newport Police Department.
