Reporting Suspicious Drug Activity
Citizens who suspect drug activity in their neighborhoods can report it anonymously to police through the use of the Secret Witness Hotline by calling 314-241-COPS (2677). Callers can remain anonymous and are not traceable to operators. Callers who wish to give their names are also welcome. If you prefer to have someone call you back, you will need to provide a daytime phone number where you can be reached.

If you are concerned your neighborhood is experiencing drug activity, you can provide police with a variety of information. Citizens should attempt to provide police with the description of drug dealers, location of drug activity and any suspicious vehicles. Providing police with the physical description of suspicious persons and their exact locations are particularly helpful. Eliminating drug activity in a neighborhood can be a difficult and time consuming task for police. Concerned citizens who can give police information about these activities are an excellent resource for officers.
