PUBLIC SAFETY INFORMATION

Regent Square Area

Covering the municipalities of Edgewood, Pittsburgh, Swissvale & Wilkinsburg

For all emergencies AND to report ANY suspicious or unusual activity: CALL 911!

9-1-1 call takers will ask your name, address and location (though you can remain anonymous). They will prioritize your call, with life-threatening calls first. Stay on the line until told to hang up. Your call will be directed to the proper police department, according to your home address.
No issue is too small or unimportant!

To obtain public safety information directly from the municipalities:

You can register to receive e-mail and/or text messages, free of charge, from the sites listed below and can sign up for all sites, regardless of what municipality you reside in.

Safety Tips provided by the Police Departments
of the four municipalities in Regent Square

1. Call 911: Donít hesitate to call 911 whenever you experience unusual or suspicious activity in the neighborhood. The 911 number serves Regent Square and is quicker and more effective than calling individual police departments. The first available municipality will respond. Questions will be asked and an officer will be dispatched before the answers are completed.

2. Lock Doors: Be sure all doors and windows that allow easy access to your home are locked. Keep garage doors closed and porches and yards free of items that invite thieves. Keep car doors locked and valuable items in cars out of sight. Donít make it easy for thieves.

3. Turn on lights: Use exterior lighting to keep your property bright even at night. If your house is well lighted it becomes less inviting to break-ins.

4. Know neighbors: Share phone numbers and let your neighbors know when you may be gone for extended periods. There is safety in numbers.

5. After dark walks: Minimize cell phone activity and texting. Donít be distracted. Be keenly aware of your surroundings and walk in well lighted areas.
