WHITESBORO, N.Y. -- The Whitesboro Police Department there has announced a new initiative called "Heads Up".
It is a new tipline, with the goal of law enforcement having an open line of communication with the surrounding community.
With social media and internet use growing every day, the Whitesboro Police Department wants to make it easier for residents and visitors to contact them about any concerns they have within the village.
So what can you give members of the department a "Heads Up" on? Everything from drug activity, to codes violations, quality-of-life lawbreakers, even those speeding through the village. It is also meant to spread good news about Whitesboro.
These tips are confidential and can be submitted to, Tips@whitesboropd.org. You can send pictures, videos, or anything that can help them out.
As always, residents could call or text tips to the Whitesboro Police Department.
All calls, texts and emails will be kept confidential, unless you state that you would like to be contacted and provide contact information.
If you are experiencing an emergency or in need immediate assistance, the department urges you to call 911, as those other options are not monitored 24 hours a day.
