HELP FIGHT CRIME IN YOUR COMMUNITY
Crime prevention cannot be achieved by the police alone. Professional law enforcement officers must work hand-in-hand with the public to fight crime and neighborhood disorder throughout our communities. We depend heavily on your assistance in reporting crimes to the police.
There are several ways to leave an Anonymous Tip with SFPD:
Anonymous 24/7 Tip Line
Text a Tip
This is still anonymous. Your text will receive a randomly assigned ID number through web based data anonymization software. SFPD Operations personnel will view all tips received 24/7 and evaluate each one. If the tip is an emergency, personnel will forward it immediately to 9-1-1 dispatch. Otherwise, the tip will be forwarded to the appropriate investigative bureau or district station. Investigative units will be able to text back and forth with the tipster using the assigned ID number.
Enter TIP411 (847411) in the "To" field and the keyword "SFPD" in the text field, followed by the message.
