Crime prevention cannot be achieved by the police alone. Together professional law enforcement officers must work hand-in-hand with the public to fight crime and neighborhood disorder throughout our communities. As such, we depend heavily on your assistance in reporting crimes to the police. The following hotline numbers are provided for your use and convenience.
Tipsters now have the option of texting us tips through their cell phone. The process is completely secure and anonymous and is a very effective and efficient means of safely communicating with us in today’s world.
