Any Round Rock TX cops here?

I am a super curious person by nature, and I was wanting to see if there was an info on a possible incident in my area.


If there aren't locals on here, maybe this will be a general question to everyone. Am I able to call the non-emergency number to ask about just basic info about an event? Like was it real or a false alarm, and did they get who they were after?

I dont work for Round Rock. But I would recommend you contact the agency during business hours and submit an open records request regarding the incident. You will have more luck seeking what you are asking. Or ask to speak with the Public Information Officer. they may be able to provide what you are looking for.

I think you will be hard pressed to find anyone that is going to talk with you about a specific incident on a public forum or private for that matter. Most agencies have policies restricting the dissemination of information through unofficial channels.

More than likely you'll be told to pound sand, though in a slightly more polite manner. If you weren't involved, they'll say something like "Just a routine call for service, nothing to worry about." They certainly won't say (or at least I don't see them saying) "Yeah, we had a break in and are looking for 3 suspects. This is what they are wearing....."

If it involved people (such as a domestic or a disturbance, etc), you definitely won't get any details because it's really none of your business. The people involved have a right to their privacy and not having everyone in the world being told about it on the phone if they call in and ask.

If it didn't make the news then it wasn't important.

That is what I figure, but I am just too nosy of a person hehe.


Some Round Rock swat guy in full gear and rifle came running through my backyard and knocked on my back patio door. He wanted to use my ladder so he could set up shop on my roof.
I said hold on and went to go put my dog in another room since she was so loud, and when I came back to the patio he was gone. About 1min later he ran back said nevermind on the ladder and took off again.

That is the reason I was so curious.

Sounds like a typical guy that does not want to play nice with Police because of personal issues. Happens a lot more often than some might think, and at times there is no real crime. We put snipers on roof tops for over watch/security. Just an added safety mesure when patrol can not deal with a call in 15-30 min. IMHO not a big deal and nothing news worthy, just another call to aide a citizen that tied up more resources and money.

Call RR PD.

Ask, can you tell me why a SWAT guy wanted on my roof at xx:xx hours? I live at 123 Main St.

Thanks.

Our dispatchers would give you enough to satisfy curiosity. Can't hurt to try.

Didn't there used to be two guys one from each dept. on here that fought constantly a few years back?

Round Rock borders Austin and Garland borders Dallas.

Maybe Richardson and Garland?

Personally, they aren't gonna tell you anything useful if you call the station. The assigned beat officer or crime prevention guy over that area might but it will be a well sanitized version.

I just remember for sure that one of them was a Garland officer and the other was a neighboring PD and they fought like cats and dogs.

Knowing how that place operates just take out the polite part and that statement will be correct.

Possibly thinking of Rockwall.

Wilco is the touchy feely type of LE. Mouth off and they will touchy feel you to the ground.

So, they haven't been touched by someone "official" saying, "No. You cannot do it that way."?

They're lucky.

To a point no....

I'm very familiar with how their corrections side works, LE is a different story, but for all intents and purposes they take no S^&( from anyone.

Back in the day the "let us help you see things our way" mentality was more liberally applied....
