About NDTip

Through a partnership with the North Dakota Sheriff’s and Deputies Association, and funded by the North Dakota Department of Human Services, the Williams County Sheriff’s Office is now participating in NDTip, a service that enables citizens to submit anonymous tips about crimes, suspicious activity, or non-emergency traffic concerns in Williams County.

NDTip removes all identifying information about the sender before the tip reaches the Sheriff's Office. There is no way to identify the sender.

NDTip is not a substitute for calling 911; if this is an emergency, or you are witnessing a crime in progress, please dial 9-1-1 immediately.
