Thank you for your patience. The answer to your question is yes; they can give you their personal number to report a crime. Most officers have a city or county issued cell phone for business purposes, but some jurisdictions just reimburse their officers for use of their private cell phone. Thus, when someone calls an officer, the officer is still supposed to report the crime, regardless of how they are notified.

Because I valyou ue your input, I would like to know what other questions did you have for me today that I can help out with:-)?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
