Transition to Centralized Dispatch/County 911 System

As of July 18th, all Sumner County agencies, including Westmoreland, transitioned to centralized dispatch. Please take note of the following changes to contact information and the process for contacting police or other emergency services:

  1. If you have any questions, concerns, or need to speak to a WPD employee about records or non-police emergencies, please call 615-644-2223 between the hours of 9AM to 5PM Monday thru Friday.
  2. If you need a law enforcement officer to investigate or if you have a problem needing immediate police attention it must go thru the old WPD phone number 615-644-2222. This will go through to centralized dispatch so everything is properly documented.
  3. All emergency calls should continue to utilize 911, which will route to the new centralized dispatch.

If you contact dispatch, either through 911 or 615-644-2222, a call taker will answer. Please note that it may be someone unfamiliar with our area. Be sure to provide as much information as you can (name, number, address, reason for calling, any other relevant details). *Please be sure to explain that you are in Westmoreland or your current location in Sumner County.

We appreciate your patience during this transition.
