Sorry wrong number – but this is an emergency – still wrong number. Police give out their correct telephone number – 905-825-4777

BURLINGTON, ON  January 4, 2012  – Wow!  If the police can’t get what they need from Google – what are the rest of us supposed to do? Halton Regional Police Service reported that it was recently made aware of an error in the contact phone number for the Service when utilizing the ‘Google’ search engine.  Is that a criminal offence?

The police apologize for any inconvenience this has caused the general public and report they have been assured ‘Google’ is working towards making the necessary correction.  You want to bet they are.

The main phone number shown by Google is 905 825-4710 when it should be 905 825-4777.

Write that one down 905-825-4777

The police want you to dial 911 when there is a genuine emergency.  However, they also remind you that there are non-emergency incidents that can be reported in person at either our police reporting centre or any of our police divisions.

Some non-emergency incidents can be reported online and the public is encouraged to visit the police web site at, for a complete understanding of these reporting provisions.  As always, if you have an emergency, call 9-1-1.
