Here’s How to Report Crime Tips Anonymously in Vanderburgh County Without WeTip
We are now three weeks into 2023, and our newly elected officials are beginning to make the positive changes promised in their campaigns.
If I told you to report a crime tip by calling WeTip, would you know that phone number off the top of your head? Yep, me either. And if I look up a number to report a crime, chances are that I would just search for the local police number.
The Cost of WeTip
WeTip is a service that law enforcement agencies can contract to take their non-emergency crime tips. Vanderburgh County has utilized this service since 2013. But both the Evansville Police Department and the Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Office have their own local anonymous tip lines.
Vanderburgh County Prosecutor Diana Moers has made the decision to cancel the contract for the WeTip line in Vanderburgh County. Moers told 44 WEVV that this will save around $70,000 a year. There was the contract fee and additional advertising dollars spent by the Prosecutor's office. This money will be used to serve local law enforcement in better ways.
