Anonymous Email Tip Form

Submit crime and suspicious activity tips anonymously to Cambridge Police via the anonymous email tip form below.You do NOT have to fill in your contact information. However, if you wish to receive a phone or email response from the police or would like to discuss the information further with an officer, please enter an email or phone number where you can be reached.

  • If you are reporting drug distribution activity please consider contacting the Cambridge Police Special Investigations Unit directly by calling the Cambridge Police Drug Tip Hotline at (617) 349-3359 or the Unit Supervisor at (617) 349-3360. Your call is very important and will remain strictly anonymous and confidential.
  • Often by actually speaking confidentially with a detective from the drug unit - information can be gathered that may provide that “missing link” needed to take action.

Remember, this form should not be used to report crimes in progress or emergency situations and is not a replacement for 9-1-1. If you witness an emergency situation, please call 9-1-1 immediately.
