The telephone lines at the Crowley Police Department must seem eerily quiet about now. There are likely two reasons. One, it's the middle of the night and even the bad guys have to sleep sometime and two, the phone lines at the Crowley Police Department are down for scheduled maintenance.

The planned outage began at midnight and service is expected to be restored by six o'clock this morning. Meanwhile, Chief Jimmy Broussard reminds you that if you have an emergency you should dial 911.

For other non-emergency business with Crowley PD, you may call (337) 789-7202. Again, that number is for non-emergency business. Hopefully whatever your non-pressing business happens to be it can wait until at least 6 am.

Regardless, while the phone lines may be down, Crowley officers are continuing to work patrolling the streets and neighborhoods of the city.
