Text an Anonymous Tip

If you have a tip about a crime or criminal activity and want to remain completely anonymous yet want to share the information with the Sheriff's Office, you can do that through a system provided by CitizenObserver.

On your cell phone, text your tip to 847411 (TIP411) and use the keyword "VCSO" in the subject or at the beginning of the message and it will be anonymously delivered to the Sheriff's Office. Through this system, the Sheriff's Office can text back if you allow it and only as long as you allow. Even when texting back, the Sheriff's Office has no information regarding who the texts are being delivered to.
