MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Memphis police officials say their regular non-emergency number, (901) 545-COPS, is back up and running Monday night.

Earlier Monday, officials were having trouble with the non-emergency number and asked residents to call an alternate number.

The number is to be used for non-emergencies, for example, if you see suspicious activity or want to file an offense report.

Police have not offered an explanation as to why the systems were down, but did say the public was never in danger.

Earlier this month, MPD's Domestic Violence Bureau had phone trouble as well.
