Podcast self defense by women aware and prepared


In this podcast episode, Mandi introduces a small membership for listeners, sharing insights from their recent quarterly call. A member’s question prompts a discussion on how exactly to call the non-emergency police line and will you get dispatch on the line when you do? Listen to her Mandi answer the question.


Lessons Learned


  • The non-emergency line is the police business line for less urgent situations

  • This number can be found on your smartphone map or web browser 

  • Either save the number in your phone or do a test on how to find the number on your smartphone so you’re prepared

  • Examples of non-emergencies include loud parties or suspicious parked cars

  • Understand dispatch prioritizes calls based on urgency

  • Consider joining the podcast membership for engagement opportunities and a deeper dive on safety tips
