Below is a chart from the Monmouth County Sheriff's office that illustrates examples of when you should dial 911 vs. 211. Below is an example of possible scenarios for calling either number. This information is from Monmouth County Sheriff Shaun Golden who stresses the importance of knowing when to dial 911 vs 211. Golden thanked the operators commenting, "A big thank you to all the unsung heroes on the other end of the line ready to help Monmouth County residents, 24/7."
