SKOKIE — The Skokie Police Department has implemented its new 24-hour, anonymous Crime Tip Hot Line to allow citizens to report suspicious circumstances or criminal activity.
Citizens with information about a crime, suspicious persons or activities, or the whereabouts of a wanted suspect can call the Crime Tip Hot Line at (847) 933-TIPS (8477) 24 hours a day and leave a message with information.
Police believe the new hotline could assist police with their investigations. Tips can be left anonymously and all Crime Tip Hot Line calls are confidential, police say.
Police say it is helpful for callers to leave a name and phone number in case a detective needs additional information.
For more information, contact the Skokie Police Department Investigations Division at (847) 982-5966 or the Crime Prevention/Community Relations Unit at (847) 982-5919.
