Marion County Emergency Dispatch is also requesting the public refrain from calling 911 for non-emergency calls. The numerous non-emergency calls are congesting the call lines.
The Hannibal Police Department is requesting residents of Hannibal remain at home and do not leave their house unless it is an emergency. We also want to inform the public that officers will only be responding to emergency calls and traffic accidents involving injury or if someone is trapped in their vehicle. We will not be responding to any other type calls. If you are involved in a minor vehicle accident, we are requesting you acquire all pertinent information and come to the police department when weather conditions allow.
