911 Emergency Communications Center

Denver’s 911 Communications Center is staffed by public safety professionals who are trained to answer 911 and non-emergency telephone calls, as well as dispatch police, fire and paramedic resources. Our dedicated Emergency Communications Operators gather critical information from callers and send the information via computer to police, fire and or paramedic dispatchers who are responsible for relaying the information to the first responders. The 911 team works in partnership with Denver Police, Denver Fire and Denver Health Paramedics to ensure the safety and quality of life for residents, businesses and visitors in the City and County of Denver.

This website is for information only and cannot be used to request help. Please dial 911 if you are experiencing an emergency. Learn more about the 911 Communications Center.
