Steps to Submit a Tip


If you witnessed a crime or want to prevent a crime by submitting anonymous information to your local Sheriff’s department or Highway Patrol, these are the steps to start submitting tips using the NDTip app:

  1. Go to the app store and download the “NDTip” app.
  2. Once installed, open the app and select “New Tip.”
  3. Choose the law enforcement agency which corresponds to the location of the crime. You can select your local Sheriff’s Department or Highway Patrol.
  4. Provide any relevant information in your tip as to what crime occurred or where. You can even include an image in your tip by selecting the camera icon.
  5. Once your information has been entered, select the “Submit” button.
  6. You should receive confirmation your tip was sent, and an officer may respond for more information.

*Please note, this program is NOT a substitute for calling 911. If you witness a crime in progress or have an emergency, call 911. The NDTip system is NOT monitored 24/7.
