* Anonymous means that your name is not known or made public. We know that our guarantee to never ask for your name or record your call is vitally important to you. It makes it easier for you to come forward, breaking the silence around criminal activity and removing your fear. You will never be asked for your name. Your call will not be recorded. Your call or online form will not be traced. You will not have to make a statement to the police. You will not appear in court. We create a report from the information you give us. Our investigator will check that this report contains no information that might identify you, e.g. if the call is about your neighbor we will not mention this. We don't even make a note of your gender.
The responsibility of reporting and fighting crime belongs to all of us, not just law enforcement alone. Citizen involvement is our greatest asset in assisting law enforcement and helping to create a safe and quality living environment for all.
