emulator 2The Hoffman Estates Police Tip Line is now available on the Hoffman Estates mobile app. 

To help make the Village of Hoffman Estates a safer place, the Hoffman Estates Police Department now offers several ways to notify us anonymously about illegal activity.

If you see a crime in progress or if this is an emergency, please call 911! 
You can still remain anonymous when calling 9-1-1.

Smart phone users can download the Hoffman Estates mobile app through the iPhone or Android app store by searching for "Hoffman Estates Mobile App."  The application is free to download and use.  By clicking on the "Police Tips" icon, you can report concerns in real time, attach photos or voice memos, and use the locator tool to report the exact location. 

The Tip Line should be used to notify the Police of illegal activity in our community such as:

  • Community Vandalism
  • Drug Activity
  • Fugitive
  • Suspicious Incident

Please have the following information ready to report:

  •  Location
  • When this activity occurred
  • Victim details
  • Suspect Information
  • Vehicle Information
  • Contact Information (if desired)

Place a tip call at: 224-254-0049 or email PoliceTips@hoffmanestates.org.  Please note the tip line is not monitored 24/7 and should NOT be used to report a crime in progress.

Remember, reporting false or malicious information to the police is a crime.
