Anonymous Witness Form

If you see or hear of something happening which you believe should be brought to the attention of the police, you can report it here by filling out the form below. Although not checked daily, UMPD staff routinely check for Anonymous Witness Form submissions.

When filling out the form, please provide as much detail as you can about date, time, location, descriptions or names of individuals involved, and details of the incident. If there are vehicles involved, a license plate and description of the vehicle(s) would be very useful.

Please consider speaking with one of our officers to assist in the investigation process. If you are willing to help in this way, fill out your contact information below. If you are not interested in speaking with an officer, your submission remains anonymous, there is no way to trace the sender of the information.

If you would rather talk with someone on the phone, call 577-TIPS (8477) or 545-2121. Thank you for your assistance in keeping our community safe.

Please provide as much detail as possible.
