Purpose of Tip Line
Members from the Frederick County Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigation Section and the Frederick Barrack of the Maryland State Police Criminal Investigation Section have created a Tips Line. The Tips Line is a voice mailbox that is dedicated to receiving information on criminal investigations from the public. The caller may remain anonymous or provide their name and information. The purpose of the Tips Line is to effectively funnel information or tips to the investigator handling the case. The Tips Line phone number will be utilized in press releases regarding on-going investigations being handled by the Criminal Investigation Sections. Investigators from both agencies will monitor the Tips Line and document the information.
Callers are directed to be detailed and specific when providing information on investigations or criminal activity. If a caller wishes to be contacted, a name and phone number is requested. On long messages, callers may have to call back a second time to include additional information.
The phone number for the Tips Line is 301-600-4131.
