FAQs

When should I call 911?

In the event of an emergency, dial 911 immediately to allow for emergency personnel to assist you in a timely manner. Once contact is made, you will be required to provide a brief explanation of the nature of the emergency, along with general contact information for dispatch and record-keeping purposes. It is always a good idea to be as descriptive as possible so the appropriate resources can be allocated to your emergency.

The 911 Center, known as Central Communications or “CCOM” in Brunswick County, is the central dispatch center of the Leland Police Department. CCOM is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and must be contacted for Leland Officers to be dispatched to a call.

If you have a non-emergency call for service, it is still necessary to dial 911 so trained dispatchers can determine the priority level of response. 

Remember - when in doubt, call 911. Do not hesitate. Time lost before calling 911 can cost lives or jeopardize important investigations. 

We welcome questions about non-emergency matters and/or general questions and concerns at (910) 371-1100. Please keep in mind that this number is not monitored 24/7.
