How it works:

Your tip is sent to a secure server in Canada where all of your identifying information is removed and a four-digit code is assigned to you. The tip is then forwarded to the law enforcement agency serving the towns of Falmouth, Gray, Yarmouth, New Gloucester, North Yarmouth, Freeport, Cumberland and Pownal and assigned to an officer for follow-up. The officer might text you back to get more information. If you don’t want the law enforcement agency to communicate with you, send a text message with the word STOP to 274637 at any time.

Cost to Text a Tip:

This service is free however; standard messaging rates and other fees may apply depending on your mobile plan. Check with your carrier for details.

IF YOU NEED IMMEDIATE ASSISTANCE, PLEASE CALL 911.

Note: Tips are anonymous – the law enforcement agency has no way of identifying you.
