EMERGENCY CALLS & POLICE SERVICES: The town's police call center is now part of Lake County's consolidated dispatching system. All requests for Highland police services — from domestic disturbances and suspicious persons to lost-and-found animals, loud music and tripped alarms — must be made by dialing 911. The Highland Police Department, however, will remain staffed around-the-clock for in-person business and administrative calls. Click here for more information.
