Cowlitz County Departments are experiencing a phone system outage with the seven digit County lines. Technicians are working on the problem at this time. If you dial the Cowlitz County Sheriff’s Office, the Dispatch Center (business lines), Longview Police (because their lines are transferred to County after hours) and some County Offices you will get a busy signal until the problem is corrected.
THIS DOES NOT INTERRUPT 9-1-1 SERVICE.
If you have an emergency please dial 9-1-1, if you are reporting a crime that is not in progress please try the business number at a later time. All in progress or urgent reports will be handled on the 9-1-1 lines.
