Submit a Crime Tip

Although a soci­ety free from crime would be ide­al, the real­i­ty is that even with a proac­tive Sher­if­f’s Office, crime will like­ly always exist. In order to be more effec­tive, our Sher­if­f’s Office relies on infor­ma­tion from sources with­in our com­mu­ni­ty. We under­stand that fear of involve­ment often affects the num­ber of tips we get from the community.

To encour­age greater involve­ment from the com­mu­ni­ty, the War­ren Coun­ty Sher­if­f’s Office offers this web-based form for report­ing infor­ma­tion about crimes while stay­ing anony­mous, if desired. You may also call the crime tip hot­line at 540–636-5946.

It is impor­tant to pro­vide as much accu­rate and detailed infor­ma­tion as pos­si­ble. This web hot­line should not be used for ini­tial report­ing of crimes that have just occurred. If you have just wit­nessed a crime, or if you require imme­di­ate law enforce­ment assis­tance, please dial 911 if there is an emer­gency or 540–635-4128 for a non-emergency.

Although this hot­line pro­vides for anony­mous report­ing, you are encour­aged to leave con­tact infor­ma­tion in case the inves­ti­ga­tor work­ing the case has addi­tion­al ques­tions they think you might be able to help with. You may have a cru­cial piece of infor­ma­tion but not real­ize its value.

If you do not want to pro­vide your name or email address, please enter the following:
