BOONE COUNTY JOINT COMMUNICATIONS
OFFERS 3-1-1 SERVICES

May 2, 2017 - Citizens in Boone County are now able to call 311 to reach the dispatch center to report non-emergency police matters. The existing non-emergency line 573-442-6131 is still in service.
This easy-to-remember number will help keep the 911-line open for emergencies. By implementing 311 we hope to shift non-emergency calls from 911 so that callers experiencing in-progress emergencies can receive priority service.

Some businesses with their own PBX may require additional configuration. Please contact 573-554-1000 if you have any questions.

When to call 911 versus 311:
