    Creative Writing Dialogues - how I can merge these 2 sentences?

    Hi,
    I'm searching a way to say the following a bit shorter (it's for subtitling, thats why it should be shorter)

    "Call the police station. Tell them we solved the problem."

    Any ideas for synonyms? Thanks for your help.

    How about:

    Call the police and tell them we solved it.

    Or

    Tell the police we solved it.
