Confidential Tip Line

The success of our mission has always been dependent on the public’s willingness to become involved. Our officers, despite being highly trained and motivated, still need your assistance. If you have information which you feel may pertain to a crime or other public safety issue, we urge you to report it. You can do this either by directly calling the department’s main phones or by utilizing one of the tip lines listed below. Often a seemingly unimportant or minor piece of information can solve a crime, or save a life.


Tip Lines

All information received from the public will be kept confidential.
