The Central SAFFE Office phone number is 207-7413. Any SAFFE Officer can try to answer your question or take your message for another officer.
Emergency vs. Non-Emergency Calls:
- Call 911 if you ARE witnessing a crime or fire, if someone is intending to harm someone, or if EMS is needed.
- Call 207-SAPD (Non-Emergency Dispatch) if you witnessed graffiti, burglary, theft, assault or robbery.
Call the SAFFE Officer after calling the Non-Emergency Dispatch to report it so he can follow up on the case. The Non-Emergency Dispatcher will prioritize your call to an officer who is on patrol based on the emergency type.
More crime-prevention tips:
- Home or business safety surveys are free through SAFFE. Call to make an appointment for an officer to come check your place. Estimated time for review is 30 minutes.
- Operation Identification – SAFFE will let you borrow an engraver to ID your electronics. A $20 deposit will be refunded when the engraver is returned. You can request this to be brought to your home or business during a safety survey by a SAFFE Officer.
- Going out of town? Call Central Post Police Station at 207-7410 to let them know and request for SAPD to check your home or business during their patrols. Also, you can request Central SA Police Explorers to come out during their regular patrols through King William.
- First Friday or any event parking or public intoxication issues: Call SAPD Non-Emergency 207-SAPD for parking violations, blocked driveway, or intoxicated persons who are making trouble or carrying an open container. SAPD’s usual command post on First Fridays is in front of B&D Ice House at S. Alamo and Cedar.
- Call the Traffic Dept. at 200-7400 if there are not any NO PARKING signs posted for First Friday before the event starts; they are usually up by 2:00 p.m. If a block party or other event doesn’t have signs or barricades up call 207-SAPD for an officer.
- H.E.A.T. (Help End Auto Theft) Program – SAPD will run your license plate from midnight – 5:00 a.m. if it’s seen on the streets and pull over your car to confirm it’s not stolen. Border Patrol will also check the plates and if the driver’s license number doesn’t match the license plate they will not let your vehicle cross the border.
