At any given time there are officers on the street, available to respond to calls for service. The Police Department counts on the citizens of Ozark to alert us to unusual situations. Any time someone calls, a dispatcher will take the information, ask questions, decide what or whom to send, and assess the urgency of the call. Each call for service will be handled, though obviously the higher priority calls may be taken first. If you have an emergency, call 9-1-1. For non-emergency calls, please use (417) 581-6600. The Ozark Police Department encourages all neighborhoods to form neighborhood watch groups. Watch groups provide extra eyes and ears in our neighborhoods. Contact one of our Crime Prevention officers for further details on starting a watch in your neighborhood.
