- Any act of violence
- A suspicious event or suspicious person
- Any medical emergency
- Any road obstruction, such as broken water lines, power lines, or livestock in the road
- A witnessed reckless driving event (try to get the tag!), or car crash

You can call (540) 434-4436 to have a dispatcher contact the on duty Grottoes Police Officer.

Calls to this number may involve situations such as:
- You’d like to ask or speak to a police officer in person or on the phone
- Barking dogs
- Town Park bathrooms not being unlocked
- Loud music complaints
- Any other situation you may feel that is non-emergent but needs a police respone

***Remember, for emergencies call 911.
