Scott County Sheriff's Office Press Releases

Posted on: May 23, 2019

[ARCHIVED] Scott County Sheriff’s Office Partners with Crime Stoppers of Minnesota

The Scott County Sheriff’s Office recently renewed its partnership with Crime Stoppers of Minnesota, a tip line that allows citizens to anonymously provide crime information to law enforcement.


“Citizens in the community are considered the eyes and ears of law enforcement,” said Sheriff Luke Hennen.  “There are times when witnesses may be able to provide valuable information but don’t always want to be identified.”


Citizens across the country can contact Crime Stoppers anonymously and the information will be shared with the appropriate law enforcement agency.  In addition to staying anonymous, persons giving tips may be eligible to collect up to $1,000 in reward paid by Crime Stoppers. 


People with knowledge about a crime, criminal, or a fugitive can call Crime Stoppers toll-free from anywhere in Minnesota (1-800-222-TIPS [8477]); submit a tip online at www.CrimeStoppersMN.org; or download and install the free ‘P3 Submit a Tip’ app to their smartphone. 


Please note that Crime Stoppers is not suited for everything.  Please use the non-emergency telephone number for dispatch 952-445-4511 to report crimes that are not in progress such as graffiti, damage to public property, stolen property, etc.  For emergencies and crimes in progress always call 9-1-1.


For more information, please visit our website at:  https://www.scottcountymn.gov/1565/12971/Crime-Stoppers or visit the Crime Stoppers website at www.CrimeStoppersMN.org.
