"I just wanted to share a resource that I've found useful, and perhaps others might as well :-) For years, now, it's been tough trying to figure out how to contact local law enforcement or related offices, as you don't want to go ahead and call 9-1-1 in non-emergency situations. If I've googled, let's say the local police department, or sheriff, many times they don't even have a website or the phone number on their site isn't updated.

This brings me the resource I've found to solve those issues and wasted time - a site called - has served useful in helping me get in contact with the local legal and law enforcement related offices. It has the official contact information for locations and departments in all states and counties of the country, so figure it might serve useful to others trying to get in touch with their local authorities, too. If you also thought others might find it useful, perhaps you'd be inclined to add it as an additional resource?

Just trying to make others' lives easier with my find! Thanks for considering my two cents :-)"

Best regards,
