The St. Francis Police Department has launched its new “Crime Tip Line” 1-763-267-6199. This new innovative program will allow citizens the ability to call in tips about ongoing or suspicious criminal activity within our city. It is not uncommon for citizens to be hesitant about reporting possible criminal activity out of fear of retaliation. This new program will allow callers to remain anonymous and leave messages without ever giving out there name on a recorded line. The “Crime Tip Line” will be checked on a regular basis for the Police Department to investigate the information that is received.
