Anonymous Tips Line

The University Police Department partners with community members to address issues of safety and security on campus. It is important that there are multiple avenues for community members to share information with the department. If you have information that you believe should be shared with UMPD -- and you wish to remain anonymous -- you may leave a voice message on the TIP line at (413)-577-TIPS (8477). Please provide as much detail as you can including date, time, location, what the incident is, and the name(s) of individuals involved. If vehicles were involved, please provide license plate and a vehicle description, if known. If remaining anonymous is not important to you, please call us at (413) 545-2121 and a Dispatcher will assist you at any time. Please consider speaking with one of our Dispatchers or a Police Officer to assist in the investigative process.

UMPD does not regularly monitor this tip line and an undetermined amount of time may pass before it is heard and acted upon. If your matter is urgent or requires a police response, please call UMPD Dispatch Center at (413)-545-2121 or in an emergency call 911.
