The Franklin County Sheriff’s hopes their new anonymous tip line will bring an increase in information and help fight crime and under age drinking. According to the KJ, the tip line is anonymous; tipsters can notify officials of crime and give them something to investigate.

Police can even respond and ask for additional information or clarification from the tipster, but the way the system is set up, it there is no way for the police to know who they are communicating with during the process.  Franklin County residents can  report crime through the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office website,, or by texting 274637 - or CRIMES - with keyword FRANKTIP plus the tip in the body of the text.
