Q. Why don't you guys get an easier to remember phone number for non-emergencies? Like, 586-0586 or 586-5860, or even 586-0000? The 586-0600 is OK, but sometimes many people just forget it and either do not call you with reports or dial 911 with a non-emergency. I recommend you at least add another, easier to remember number for non-emergencies - and see what happens! I am sure phone companies or current number owners will be happy to help and give you the number if it's already taken.
