Submit a Crime Tip



Text anonymous tips to the Lorain Police Department.

The citizens of Lorain are our greatest crime fighting resource.  We depend on you to alert us to crime and to any information that may help us to solve, reduce, and prevent crimes.

We know that many people may see something or have information about a crime but may not feel comfortable calling and reporting it to the police for fear of retribution or being called a “snitch”.

We want and need your help.  We have partnered with tip411 to provide you with as many ways as possible to share crime tips with us completely anonymously.  Please use the form below to submit an anonymous crime tip directly to our dispatchers.

We hope that residents will use tip411 to  share important information about suspicious activity, drugs, domestic violence, and other crimes  to help make Lorain a safer place for all who live, work, and play in our community.



If you have an emergency, please call 9-1-1.  Do not use this form to report a crime in progress. For crimes in progress or to file a police report, please contact the Lorain Police Department directly at (440) 204-2100.
