Cayuga Heights Police Department Anonymous Tip Form

The latest endeavor of the Cayuga Heights Police Department (CHPD) is to provide a way for residents of the Village to submit an anonymous warrant tip to their local authorities. The purpose of this is to enhance the overall safety and security of the Village of Cayuga Heights and it's residents. We are aware the residents providing information via this avenue may be concerned about their personal safety, hence we have elected to utilize an anonymous format as public safety is paramount to CHPD. Whether information provided is relative to an incident that has previously occurred or one that is going to occur, all tips are confidential and will be investigated.

When providing tips for active warrants, please include the individuals first name, last name and date of birth.

(please enter security code)
