Halifax Regional Police is launching a new tip line to encourage people to come forward with information on violent crime in our community.
Starting today, citizens can reach out to police with information on gun-related crime by calling the Gun Violence Tip Line, a confidential tip line monitored by an investigative team in the Integrated Criminal Investigation Division.
“As community members, we are all feeling the impact of these violent incidents that have occurred,” says Chief Dan Kinsella. “We are exploring every avenue to progress these investigations, and we need help from the community. We hope that providing a more direct and confidential conduit to the investigative team will make people who have information more comfortable with sharing what they know.”
The tip line can be reached 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Callers may leave an anonymous tip, or they can leave their name and a contact number, and an investigative team member will contact them. We want to assure citizens that the information they provide is important and all tips will be reviewed and followed up on by a team member.
To reach the Gun Violence Tip Line, call: 902-490-5151.
No piece of information is too small, and it is never too late to come forward with information on violent crime.
Citizens are reminded that they should call 911 anytime there is an immediate risk to someone’s safety or property and to report crimes in-progress to police.
