It’s a good idea to program some or all of these numbers into your phone:
If you have a police emergency, phone the Oakland Police Department emergency number: 510-777-3211. This number reaches local police faster than dialing 911.
Oakland Police non-emergency number: 510-777-3333
Oakland Police are stretched thin. The Oakland Ambassadors have a security patrol in the area who are available every day until 9 p.m. The security Ambassadors should be called first for non-emergency issues.
Ambassadors team lead’s phone number: 510-898-8592
Uptown Ambassadors general number: 510-452-4529
Downtown Ambassadors general number: 510-238-1122
