Anonymous Crime Tip Line

The anonymous crime tip line phone number is 630-671-5756. This tip line provides citizens with an opportunity to report information regarding a crime or an incident of which they have knowledge.

The Bloomingdale Police Department hopes to encourage the community to assist them by overcoming 2 key crime reporting deterrents: fear and apathy.

The anonymous crime tip line is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and is part of an ongoing effort to develop innovative ways to reduce crime and violence in and around Bloomingdale.

Who Should Call
Anyone who has information concerning a homicide, gangs, guns, drug activity, or any other type of information that would aid police personnel are encouraged to call. Often a seemingly unimportant or minor piece of information can solve a crime by providing the missing link.

How Does the Tip Line Work
When a citizen calls the tip line at 630-671-5756 he or she will hear a taped recorded message.

Explain the activity in as much detail as possible. You do not have to provide your name, address, or telephone number. All information remains confidential.

  • Be as specific as possible in providing the following information:
    • Location of building or house, name of nearest intersection
    • Description of person(s) involved, such as height, sex, age, weight, clothing, hair color, eye color, skin color, any distinguishing marks, and names if known
    • Description of vehicles involved, make, model, color, and license plate
