Official numbers for contacting the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office

The Macon-Bibb Communications Center started countywide dispatching Jan. 1. Here are the phone numbers to call for requesting law enforcement services.

The Bibb County Sheriff’s Office nonemergency number is now 478-751-7500. The emergency number is 911.

For administrative services of the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office, call 478-746-9441.

The nonemergency number should be used to report incidents that are no longer occurring, or when calling 911 would not increase the chances of preserving life, property or apprehending suspects.

The nonemergency number is answered 24 hours a day.

The 911 number is for emergencies, potential emergencies or when an emergency is imminent. If in doubt about whether it is an emergency and law enforcement is requested, dial 911.

The 911 professional will determine whether the call should be processed via 911, or whether the caller should be referred to another number or agency.

If you call 911 by mistake, do not hang up. Stay on the line and tell the dispatcher that everything is all right. All 911 calls must be verified by sending a law enforcement officer to the address. Cellular 911 calls will be verified by calling the cellular phone number back.

When calling the sheriff or the administrative offices of the sheriff’s office, call 478-746-9441.
