The Palo Alto Police Department engages with our community on several social media platforms. We post news releases, crime prevention tips, crime statistics, photos and videos, and human interest stories. We encourage you to connect with us!
If you are a Palo Alto resident, join this Palo Alto-specific social media site to interact with others on your block. Start here: http://www.rblock.com/
Our social media presence is maintained by members of our Public Information Officer Team, but it is not a substitute for 9-1-1. Please do not use social media to report criminal activity that requires a police response. If you have an emergency, please call 9-1-1. If you require non-emergency police assistance or want to report suspicious activity, please call our 24-hour dispatch center at 650-329-2413.
