If you are in Dakota County, call 9-1-1 for all non-emergencies. Dispatchers at the Dakota Communications Center will route callers to the appropriate person to speak with. Non-emergencies include abandoned cars, lost or found property, non-injury accidents, vandalism, and other crimes not in progress. Calling 9-1-1 does not interrupt emergency response or distract from urgent calls. It is structured to handle all types of public safety concerns. We encourage you to call 9-1-1 anytime you feel unsafe or suspicious of activity you are witnessing. If you are outside of Dakota County, call 952-322-2323.
