The Pennsylvania Office of the Attorney General has launched an anonymous tips program designed to help fight illegal drugs and to protect minors against sexual cybercrimes. 
The Bureau of Narcotics Investigation within the Office of Attorney General has set up a tip line that seeks to keep drugs out of the wrong hands and improve the quality of life for citizens. They ask:
  • Have you witnessed drug deals in your neighborhood, suspect a neighbor of cooking meth in your apartment building, or have a bad feeling that drug-related crimes are an everyday occurrence where you live? 
  • Do you work in medicine or a pharmacy and suspect a coworker of stealing or using drugs meant for patients?
If so, you can send an anonymous tip to their office by texting PADRUGS + YOUR TIP to 847411 or by clicking here to e-mail.
The Pennsylvania Attorney General's Child Predator Section (CPS) is empowered to investigate any case in which a minor is the victim of a sexual solicitation from an adult via the Internet.  CPS also investigates the online sharing, downloading and distribution of child pornography.
If you, or someone you know, has been the victim of a sexual cybercrime, please contact their office.  You can send an anonymous tip directly from your cell phone by texting PAKIDS + YOUR TIP to 847411 or by clicking here to email.
