The Nelsonville Police Department will be changing their non-emergency telephone system on June 1, 2017.
The non-emergency 740-753-1922 and 740-75-1736 will no longer ring into Athens County 9-1-1. These telephone numbers will only ring directly into the Nelsonville Police Station. Since the numbers are only ringing into the police station callers may be connected with an answering machine when officers are on calls. The 740-753-1922 and 740-753-1736 telephone numbers should only be used for NON-EMERGENCY CALLS;
- General questions
- Information regarding ongoing investigations
- Requests for police reports
If you require an emergency response from the Nelsonville Police Department for a LIFE OR DEATH EMERGENCY, then call 9-1-1 for an emergency response.
