It's anonymous, easy and safe!

The Carroll County Sheriff's Office provides a toll-free TIPS Hotline, which allows citizens to provide anonymous information regarding criminal activity in their community. Citizens can now call and report information on an anonymous phone line by leaving a recorded message regarding Wanted persons, drug activity, or any other type of crime in their community. Callers will have the option of remaining completely anonymous, or can ask for a law enforcement officer to return their call. All information will be given to a Sheriff's Investigator, or forwarded to the appropriate police agency for investigation.

To reach the anonymous TIPS HOTLINE, callers simply need to dial toll free 1-888-399-TIPS (8477) and leave a recorded message. Callers will be advised that if they are in need of immediate assistance, they should hang up and dial 911.
