In regard to 911 emergency calls (to report crime or suspicious behavior):

Many areas of the City of Atlanta in DeKalb County are affected by cell towers that may direct 911 calls to DeKalb County instead of Atlanta.  If you call 911 from a cell phone and DeKalb Police answers, say you’re in the city of Atlanta, give your address and wait to be transferred. From a land line you call dial 911.

You can store the 10-digit Atlanta Police Emergency number in your cell phone: 404-658-6666.  

If you choose to use it, give your location first because that number does not reveal your phone number and in case of disconnection the police will know where to respond.

In regard to 311 non-emergency calls (street lights out, sidewalk issues, potholes, etc.):

Call 311 from a land line or 404-546-0311 from a cell phone.
