Any misuse or abuse of this system is strictly prohibited. You acknowledge and confirm that the information you are providing is not urgent or requiring prompt or immediate attention, and you understand that you should call 9-1-1 or contact the appropriate authorities by phone if this is time-sensitive information.

Submission and Disposition

Although we utilize physical, electronic, and administrative safeguards, including industry-standard encryption, due to the nature of the Internet and SMS delivery networks, we do not guarantee 100% security or timely delivery or reception of the submitted information. We do not guarantee or assume any responsibility for if, how, or when any submitted information may be reviewed or acted upon by law enforcement or public safety officials. Because information that you submit may not be monitored by such parties on a regular basis, you should not use this service to report events presenting an immediate danger to life or property, or which otherwise constitute an emergency as such reports may not receive an immediate response.



To guarantee anonymity, our website uses a proxy server that overwrites individual IP addresses so third-party cookie tracking tools only see a proxy or `masked’ IP address, not the user’s original IP. This means we can’t track crime information submitted back to your electronic device.
