In the summer of 2014 the Clinton Police Department expanded their means on how citizens are able to report crimes and tips. Citizens are still able to submit report tips through the anonymous tip hotline at (910) 590-3009 or through our website at Report a Crime. However, citizens are now able to report a crime or tip through anonymous two way text messaging. Simply text any information you may have regarding a crime to 847411 beginning with the code word tipcpd followed by your message. This form of communicating allows citizens to have real time communication with the Police Department. No names, phone numbers, or any form of identification are relayed to the police department as the system is web based and the texts are completely confidential. Citizens may also go to Tip 411 to submit a tip online rather than texting.
