9-1-1 Use & Abuse
Crime prevention cannot be achieved by the police alone. Together, professional law enforcement officers must work hand-in-hand with the public to fight crime and neighborhood disorder throughout our communities. As such, we depend heavily on your assistance in reporting crimes to the police. The following hotline numbers are provided for your use and convenience.

Crime Stoppers
Anonymous Tips
You may submit an anonymous tip any time, anywhere, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, by phone at (352) 368-7867. What does anonymous mean? Anonymous means that your name is not known or made public. It is vital to us that our programs guarantee anonymity. If the identity of one of our tipsters was made known it would destroy the trust Crime Stoppers has worked so hard to build with its communities.
