Kentucky sheriffs' group offers tip line on its website


Associated Press

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Sheriffs' Association has created a tip line on its website.
Sheriffs' Association Executive Director Jerry Wagner says tips received will be forwarded to the appropriate office.
Wagner says all identifying information is removed before a tip is received by the sheriff's office. He says the tip line can be used to notify a sheriff's office of drug activity or other illegal activity. Wagner says the tips can be useful information in making arrests.
Tipsters are asked to be as specific as possible when passing along information. Wagner says that includes when the illegal activity occurred, where and who was involved. He says the more detailed the information, the better chance authorities have of using it in a case.
The tip line is on the sheriffs' association website at
