Anonymous Tips


The Palm Bay Police Department's mission is to protect and serve the people of our community. One way we can continually improve our service to you is by hearing from you.

Your assistance in providing information can be very helpful in solving a crime. Although we hope that you feel comfortable contacting the Police Department with information you may have, we also understand that you may have some reservations in doing so and therefore we offer anonymous ways to report crime.

The Police Department offers several ways to report concerns and information regarding criminal activity anonymously:

  • Leave a voicemail message on the City's Anonymous Crime Tip Hotline at (321) 952-3450. (Make sure you speak clearly and slowly and give as much information as possible, e.g. dates, times, addresses, vehicles, and people involved.)
  • Text "crimeline" plus your tip information to CRIMES (274637)
  • Call the CRIMELINE 24/7 Call Center using a toll free number: 1 (800) 423-TIPS (8477); no caller id and no recorded calls.
  • Visit give a tip anonymously.

Please do not use these resources to report a crime in progress or issues of an emergency nature. To report an emergency or a crime in progress, please call 9-1-1.

Although anonymous information is useful, please consider leaving your contact information. This will allow Detectives to properly follow up if additional questions need to be answered.

Thank you for helping to make
the City of Palm Bay an even safer community!
