Newton County Sheriff’s Police always welcome input from the public. Now, a new program finds Sheriff Tom VanVleet initiating a new tool to keep lines of communication open.
The sheriff says over the last couple years his department has been working to continue to improve our public communication. The response to the department’s Facebook, Twitter and the Mobile Patrol APP has been overwhelming, according to VanVleet.
To continue with these efforts, a TIP LINE has been added. Though the tip line is not monitored 24/7 and not for reporting active incidents, the sheriff hopes that it will prove to be an effective tool.
Anyone that has a tip on a crime, they can call 219-234-7014 and give their information. The caller can remain anonymous.
