We Need Your Help
Helping WITHOUT Having to Call the Police
Everyone in the community can now participate with minimal effort ANONYMOUSLY.
Gangs are a community problem requiring a collaborative approach of intervention, prevention and suppression.
This website operates like a local / regional "crime watch" that allows residents and businesses to communicate about criminal gang activity impacting their neighborhoods and businesses on a real time basis in an effort to prevent the community from being further victimized. This public safety partnership allows the community to become additional eyes and ears to law enforcement to fight gang crime proactively.
Gang Members Hiding in the Cracks
Because gang members hide in the cracks of our community as they commit crimes in the Spokane area, we need your help identifying them and their criminal activities. Our web site allows businesses and the public to report gang related incidents no matter how trivial on an anonymous basis; if that is your preference. Our website is for members of the community trying to keep their neighborhoods and families safe from gangs and related violence. Your participation is greatly appreciated and collectively can provide significant help is thwarting criminal gang activity.
However, the TIP system will not generate a police report and we thoroughly advise to make a report if you are a victim of a crime. A tip can be submitted but should not take the place of an original report. The TIP system is not monitored 24 hours a day, so if this is an emergency or you need immediate police assistance, call 911.
Why Anonymous Reporting?
Law enforcement can be made aware of the incident / tip without having to involve you as a witness. All leads can be submitted on a confidential basis to the Spokane Violent Crime Gang Enforcement Team. All tips are anonymous unless the submitter provides their contact information. Your IP Address is not being logged and/or transmitted during submission.
