Can I dial 9-1-1 to get the Police Department?

All 9-1-1 calls are routed to the Freestone County Sheriff’s Office, directly. They transfer calls to the appropriate jurisdiction. Do not hesitate to call 9-1-1 in the case of an emergency! The 911 operators are trained to ask specific questions to enable them to get help to you in the most expeditious manner, whether it is fire, police, or ambulance. If you are calling from a land based telephone, your location will show up on the 9-1-1 operator’s screen, but if you are calling from a cell phone, this information is not available, so stay on the line until your location is verified.
