Important Phone Numbers All Memphians Should Have On Hand

Person Holding Phone

If you are a Mid-South resident living in Shelby County, Germantown, Bartlett, or Millington, there are several important phone numbers we believe all people should have close by, especially in the case of an emergency. Whether you have been in an auto accident, need to contact the city about cleanup, or have a loved one who may have found themselves on the wrong side of the law, we hope these numbers will serve as a valuable, time-saving resource for our readers.

We believe emergency fire and police services are the most important contacts to have nearby, but remember in the case of a life-threatening situation please call 9-1-1 first.

  • Memphis Police – 901-545-2677 (COPS)
  • Memphis Fire – 901-458-8281
  • Shelby County Sheriff – 901-379-7625
  • Shelby County Fire – 901-222-8010
  • Bartlett Police – 901-385-5555
  • Bartlett Fire – 901-385-5533
  • Millington Police – 901-872-3333
  • Millington Fire – 901-386-1728

Speaking of accidents, there is relief when your vehicle is damaged by a pothole or area maintained by the City of Memphis or State of Tennessee. Please note that as of July 1, 2018 the City of Memphis no longer handles pothole damage claims as they are now the responsibility of the Tennessee Department of Safety (TDOT). For more information or to file a pothole related claim, call TDOT at 901-578-4399. For other general services information in the Memphis area, you may use the following numbers:

  • Dial 311 from your cell phone for general information and services related to Memphis
  • Mayor Strickland – 901-636-6000
  • MLGW – 901-544-6500 (for outages)

Unfortunately, it is a reality that you or someone you know has probably made a mistake and been arrested or issued a citation or speeding ticket.  The following list of numbers can usually help you through the process:

  • General Jail Information – 901-222-4700
  • Downtown Jail (Men) – 901-222-4830
  • Jail East (Women) – 901-222-6600
  • Sessions Criminal Court – 901-222-3600
  • Citizens Dispute – 901-222-4013
