What to do if I see a dead animal in the roadwayThe City of El Cajon uses Dead Animal Removal (DAR) to remove deceased animals from the roadway. DAR can reached directly at 619-390-8204 or you can call the ECPD Communications Center at 619-579-3311.
How do I get in touch with a police officer after business hours?
Outside of regular hours of operation, please call 619-579-3311. After hours, the phones are forwarded to our dispatch center. This 24-hour dispatch center is the 911 center for all of El Cajon.
All phone lines are recorded at this agency.
What if I no longer want to prosecute the perpetrator for the crime case?
There are cases when the victim of a crime case determines that they no longer desire to proceed with further criminal action. Generally, it is within the victim’s right to file a “No Prosecution” form. This process will cancel the investigative and prosecution process.
