How do I get in touch with a police officer after business hours?
Outside of regular hours of operation, please call 619-579-3311. After hours, the phones are forwarded to our dispatch center. This 24-hour dispatch center is the 911 center for all of El Cajon.
All phone lines are recorded at this agency.
What if I no longer want to prosecute the perpetrator for the crime case?
There are cases when the victim of a crime case determines that they no longer desire to proceed with further criminal action. Generally, it is within the victim’s right to file a “No Prosecution” form. This process will cancel the investigative and prosecution process.
Can I contact the detective assigned to my crime case if I have additional relevant information?
Yes. You can call the Investigation Division if you have additional information that may lead to the successful resolution of your crime case. Remember to obtain the crime case number from the Records Division prior to calling.
