Submit an Anonymous Tip

The Hancock County Sheriff’s Office is now participating in tip411 service to allow citizens to submit anonymous tips.   

When you submit a tip through any of the four options below, it is sent to a 3rd party tip service acting as a privacy buffer between you and the Hancock County Sheriff Office to preserve your identity and contact information. If you have a tip for the Hancock County Sheriff Office  please use any of the four options below to help provide important information on crimes or criminals that will help us to keep Hancock County safe for everyone.

Tip submissions may not be received until the following day. In case of emergency dial 911.  If the situation is not an emergency but still requires an officer to respond soon, then you may dial our non-emergency number at (207) 667-7575.
