Reports - Before You Call

The Fuquay-Varina Police Department receives thousands of phone calls per year. To save time and possible frustration, use this helpful checklist before calling the Police Department with a non-emergency inquiry or request:

  • Have a pen and paper on hand to write down information, names and contact information for future reference.
  • If you are calling to report or inquire about an incident, you need to know whether the incident occurred inside the Town Limits of Fuquay-Varina. If not, it may be one of the other agencies' jurisdictions within Wake County.
  • If you are inquiring about an incident that has already been reported, please have the case incident number or the date / approximate time / location in hand before calling. This will help our staff to quickly retrieve the incident information.
  • If you are inquiring about the status of your case investigation, you need to speak with the assigned investigator. If you do not know the name, or the phone number, for the assigned investigator, ensure you have the case number or the date/approximate time/location available so that an employee may research the case to determine the investigator for you.
  • If you are calling to add items to a stolen items or damages list after the initial report was taken, call 919-552-3191 to speak to an officer to request a supplemental report to add the additional items or damages to your case.
If you need to speak with a specific employee, call Police Communications at 919-552-3191 and follow their instructions to reach the employee.
