Prioritizing of Calls for Service

The Brantford Police Service Communications Staff works on a priority system, using answers to their questions to prioritize calls from the highest priorities to lower priorities. For example, a crime in progress or a motor vehicle accident with injuries would be assigned higher priorities than a barking dog or a theft, not in progress. Higher priority calls are dispatched before lower priority calls. It is our goal to provide you with the most efficient and prompt service possible. By prioritizing our calls we are better able to respond to higher priority, more serious crime incidents in a timely manner. Whenever possible, callers will be advised of delays.
