Calls for service are dispatched to Ridgefield officers by the Clark Regional Emergency Services Agency (CRESA). For more information, see the Clark Regional Emergency Services Agency's website.
For EMERGENCIES, please call 911.
Call 911 anytime you have an emergency when police, fire or medical response is required immediately. A good rule of thumb is – when life or property is threatened or at immediate risk, or if there is a good chance that a criminal can be apprehended, call 911. If you are unsure, do not hesitate to call 911. Assistance will be dispatched to the most critical calls first. Visit the Clark Regional Emergency Services Agency website for more information about when to call 911 and what to expect when you call.
Call if you can, text if you can’t. Limited text-to-911 capabilities are also available.
