MOUNT VERNON — The crime tip line for the Knox County Sheriff’s Office has been changed. The new tip line number is 740-393-6800, ext. 230.
According to Sheriff David Barber, the original toll free tip line 1-888-363-TIPS (8477) is no longer in service as the tip line service vendor is no longer in business.
Barber encourages citizens to use the confidential crime information tip line to report suspected criminal activity, including drug activity, burglaries, child and elder abuse, and welfare fraud.
The 24-hour tip line is 740-393-6800, ext. 230.
