When to Call
- Maybe you overhear someone bragging about having committed a crime.
- Maybe you know someone who is driving a stolen car...or is hiding from the police...or is a robber or drug dealer.
- Or maybe you just see something that doesn't look right. A strange car. A person acting sneaky. Someone with a gun or knife.
If you aren't sure that what you saw or heard is really a crime, call anyway. Let the police decide if it's worth investigating. It may be a piece of a clue to a big crime.
If something needs immediate attention or is an emergency always call 911 first.
