Frequently Asked Questions

In the event of an emergency, dial 911 immediately so that emergency personnel can 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 24/7 and must be contacted for Leland Police Officers to be dispatched.

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.

If you are the victim of an offense in Leland in which a report is taken, you may contact the Leland Police Department Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. to obtain a copy of the report. You must allow 7-10 business days for the reports to be processed and available.

If you are the parent or guardian of a juvenile involved in an incident, you may obtain a copy of that incident report.

Like incident reports, accident (or collision) reports require 7-10 days to process and be available to the individuals involved.

Please allow 10 business days for collision reports to be completed. Collision reports will be available through Crash Docs.

The Leland Police Department is always grateful for the interest citizens have in volunteering.

We currently have volunteers who assist with the Are You Okay? program and other community resource programs, as well as with former police investigators working our cold cases. We also have interns to assist with the updating and management of new record-keeping systems and protocols within our department.

If you would like to volunteer, we are interested in having the assistance of anyone with experience in crime analysis and familiarity with Microsoft Excel and Access to further assist our crime analysis program.
