BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – The Melbourne Police Department is expanding its ability to handle some non-emergency calls and calls that “occurred earlier” over the phone.
“Implementing the new procedure will reduce unnecessary face to face contact and limit officer’s exposure to COVID-19,” said MPD officials.
The new procedure will also allow officers to be readily available to respond to emergency calls and incidents that are “In-Progress.”
“The community can be assured that each reported case will be followed up appropriately,” said MPD officials.
“Officers will also continue to patrol the city and take enforcement action to keep our community safe.”
Please call the non-emergency number at 321-608-6731 to report an incident. In an emergency, please dial 911.
“We appreciate your understanding as we work to continue maintain the integrity of our workforce so that we can continue to serve our city with excellence,” said MPD officials.
