Report a Crime Anonymously
WeTip Phone Hotline
Anyone wishing to anonymously report gang activity, crimes of violence or other any other crime are encouraged to call WeTip at 1-800-782-7463 (1-800-78-CRIME). Your call to WeTip is totally confidential, as you never have to give your name or other identifying information about you. Your phone conversation is not recorded or traced. The Salinas Police Department just wants your crime tip information. (You may also call these numbers for additional types of crime: 1-800-47-ARSON, 1-800-DRUGS, 1-800-US-FRAUD.)
When you call We Tip, you will be speaking with a live operator. Because WeTip is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, you can call anytime, day or night. There are bilingual operators available as well.
Remember, if you are reporting any in-progress crime you should always call 911. In addition, you may also call in a non-emergency crime tip on the following numbers: 831-758-7321, 831-775-4222 or 831-758-7400 (Monterey County Joint Gang Task Force). These phone numbers are available to those that do not wish to speak to a live operator but desire to leave a crime tip.
If you have any questions feel free to contact Sergeant Heath Johnson at 831-758-7247 or Press Information Officer (PIO) Miguel Cabrera at 831-758-7348.
