Anonymous Tip Line
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
ANONYMOUS TIP LINE: 650-873-2467 (873-AIMS)
Do not use the ANONYMOUS TIP LINE for emergencies. For an emergency, dial 911.
The Daly City Police Department provides an anonymous tip line as an alternative means by which individuals can relay valuable information in an anonymous manner. The Department's goal in providing this service is to obtain information on criminal activity that is unattainable through conventional methods and to assist the department in investigating criminal activity that might otherwise go unreported.
This anonymous tip line has been installed to receive information from those individuals who are reluctant to become involved in reporting criminal activity but realize that an injustice has occurred. Callers are encouraged to leave their names and phone numbers but may choose to leave information anonymously. Whenever someone contacts the Daly City Police Department with information concerning criminal activity, we attempt to protect their identity to the extent that the law allows.
Telephone calls received on the anonymous tip line are recorded on an answering machine. Department personnel check the machine periodically and distribute the information received according to established procedures. In some instances criminal investigations may be initiated from this information.
As with any police department telephone line, there are criminal penalties for reporting false information or using the phone in a harassing manner. Effective security and the protection of people and property is everybody’s responsibility. Take the first step in helping us make our community safer by calling the anonymous tip line when you have personal knowledge of criminal activity.
