To make our communities safer, the Newton County Sheriff’s Office is launching a new way to collect your tips to provide leads to help us solve crimes or prevent them from happening.  Through our tip line, you will be able to tell us instantly and anonymously about crimes that may be happening in your communities. The fight to protect our communities is not just up to law enforcement; it’s a partnership between your community and law enforcementWe look to you who live in these communities we protect to provide us with information about crimes. With the time and location of an incident, we can better respond and provide the necessary resources quickly and efficiently.  

You will have the option to provide your personal information, but this will not be required to submit your tip. We value your privacy. Concerned citizens can report suspicious or unusual activities while having the assurance that your identity will remain anonymous and confidential.

Our goal is to have a significant impact in keeping our communities safe, without violating your privacy.  We need your help in our efforts to remove crime from our streets.  If you have information about a crime, please submit your information by calling the Newton County Sheriff’s tip line at 219-234-7014.
