ADA, OK -- Residents in Pontotoc and surrounding counties will now have a new hotline to call to report crimes.
The Chickasaw Nation Lighthorse Police Department is now offering a new telephone tip line available 24 hours a day for residents to call.
According to Lighthouse Police, an analyst will be able to answer questions from 8 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday, and all calls after hours will be recorded and given to the authorities.
Captain Steve Cash said sometimes residents may not know which law enforcement to contact, but they hope to solve that problem.
“If there’s a tip that comes in that may or may not be in our jurisdiction or area, then we’re able to pass that information on to the appropriate law enforcement agencies,” said Cash.
Residents can reach the hotline at 1-866-928-7384. All tips are anonymous.
