The Yuba City Police Department has created this online form to allow persons to provide anonymous or confidential tips or information to the police department.

You can make an official report by calling (530) 822-4660 or in some circumstances you make an official report online by clicking here.

The below form has some required entries (those marked with an *) all others are optional. If you wish to report this tip over the phone you can call our Anonymous Tip Line at (530) 822-2026 or if the incident is occurring now you can call our dispatch center at (530) 822-4660 and still remain anonymous.

The following information about yourself is OPTIONAL, you can submit the tip anonymously without identifying yourself. There is a distinction between anonymous and confidential. In the case of anonymous we will be unable to clarify information that might be vital to our investigation because we would have no way of determining who sent the tip. However, being confidential and supplying your contact information would assist us greatly should we need further or clarifying information. We can, in most cases that end up in court, keep your information confidential and we will never divulge your information unless ordered to do so by a court.

The Yuba City Police Department takes all tips seriously. Tipsters should also take submitting tips seriously considering the resources of the police department that could be expended in following a tip to the conclusion. Submitting false or intentionally misleading information could result in criminal or civil liability. Please check the box below to agree with the following statement. If you don't agree then your tip cannot be submitted online.
