New tip line

The Hillsborough Police Department has created a phone number to allow callers to anonymously leave information about criminal activity.

The Tip Line, 919-732-3975, is not answered by police and is routed directly to voicemail. It is separate from the main phone system used by the department and does not record callers’ phone numbers. If callers wish to be contacted, they must leave a name and phone number.

Callers are encouraged to leave as much information as possible, including locations of the activity and identities, addresses and vehicle descriptions for suspects and their associates. When reporting drug-related activity, callers are asked to report which drugs are involved, if known.

In case of an emergency, callers should dial 911. To speak with a police officer, callers should dial 919-732-9381. Anonymous crime tips also may be submitted through the town’s website.
