When neighbors look out for each other, everyone is safer.
PLEASE REPORT CRIME
If a crime is in process or you have an emergency, always call 911. Don’t assume that someone else has already called.
Philly311 is Philadelphia’s system for dealing with a variety of urban problems that are not emergencies. These may include:
- Street issues like abandoned cars, fallen trees, potholes or traffic signal problems;
- Building issues like fire and safety violations, vacant buildings, structures in danger of collapse, or people doing construction without a permit; and
- Trash issues like graffiti, illegal dumping, missed trash or recycling collection, or messy vacant lots.
You can submit a 311 request by calling 3-1-1, emailing Philly311@phila.gov, or tweeting @philly311. You can also download the Philly311 app.
To submit a tip to the Philadelphia Police Department, call 215-686-TIPS (8477), text 773847, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you live in the 24th District, you also have your own tip line: 215-685-3281.
Include as many details as you can, such as the street address or names of any people you can identify. Include contact information if you would like the police to follow up with you directly. Use email to send photos or video.
