Is it possible to report drug activity anonymously? Narcotic use can be reported anonymously. However, Narcotics Division employees normally prefer that the complainant's identify be obtained. This will help cops if they make arrests and have to testify in court. It also allows victims who may not feel safe reporting crimes against them to do so.
Anonymous reports can be made by calling 1-800-882-1222. You will be connected to a crime tip line staffed by members of the National Crime Information Center (NCIC). These are actual police officers who can answer your questions and give you advice on how to protect yourself from crime. They can also connect you to your local law enforcement agency or hospital if you need medical assistance. An officer will record your information and send you an email with instructions on how to submit an anonymous crime report online.
Cops love receiving anonymous tips because they don't show up on anyone's radar screen and allow them to work undercover without being detected. Also, informants who provide information about illegal activities can apply for immunity from prosecution if their testimony helps convict someone else. In addition, criminals tend to avoid places where they might get caught (like police stations), but they also dislike being around people who know them so anonymity gives them a chance to be themselves without being judged.
Criminals take advantage of our society's need for security.
You may contact Crimestoppers anonymously at 0800 555 111 with any information you have about drug dealings, drug usage, or anything else. You could receive up to £1000 (or more) if your tip leads to the arrest of someone involved in drug trafficking.
If you don't want to call Crimestoppers, you can always report drugs dealers by contacting your local police station. They will be able to tell you how to proceed if you provide evidence such as photographs.
Please note that giving information about drug dealers to police does not necessarily mean that they will take action - for example, they might just use it to help track down other witnesses/suspects. However, if anyone is arrested based on your information, you will be thanked for your assistance and possibly awarded a certificate of commendation.

All states operate some type of intervention program for those in need of help with their drug problems. These programs range from state-run hospitals to community centers to private rehabilitation facilities. Some states also provide funding for treatment options such as medication-assisted therapy or counseling services through non-profit organizations.
In most states, there is no way for someone to sue their doctor for writing them a prescription for addictive painkillers or other medications.
Anyone with information on drug activities can contact Crime Stoppers by phone or online. A nationwide tip line is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and the program also has local offices. Witnesses to drug offenses can call in anonymously or fill out an online form. Crime Stoppers may pay up to $5,000 for information that leads to an arrest and conviction.
