Macomb County

The Macomb County Sheriff’s Office is pleased to announce the implementation of a cell phone and web-based application which will allow citizens to report tips to us. Our ability to solve crimes, and create a safer community has a lot to do with the involvement of its citizens. 

This Office is embracing new technologies that will allow us to open up a two-way line of communication which will enable citizens to anonymously provide us information that will assist us in the solving of crimes and create a safer community. You can even attach photographs and videos after you submit an initial tip!

When you submit a tip via any of the three options listed below, it is sent to a 3rd party tip service, which acts as a privacy buffer between you and the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office in order to protect your identity and your contact information. If you have a tip for the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office, you can utilize any of the three options listed below to help provide vital information on crimes, criminals, or those engaging in illicit or criminal activity which will assist us in keeping your community safe for everyone.

This service is being provided to the public for non-emergency use, and is NOT monitored 24/7.  This service is not meant to substitute a call to request police in an emergency. In the event of an emergency, you should always contact 9-1-1. If your situation is not an emergency, but you still need an officer to respond, then you should contact our dispatch center at 586-469-5151. 

tip411 is for providing information after a crime has occurred or to let us know about on-going issues in your neighborhood.
