Northwest Regional Crime Prevention

About Us

Picture of the state of North Dakota with the words "Northwest Regional Crime Prevention."Northwest Regional Crime Prevention (NWRCP) is comprised of the McKenzie County Sheriff's Office, Williams County Sheriff's Office, and the Williston Police Department.

NWRCP provides access to an anonymous tip line for citizens to provide vital information on crimes, criminals, or those engaging in illicit or criminal activity. The involvement of our citizens is crucial for solving crimes and keeping our community safe!

Keep these things in mind when submitting a tip:

  • This service is being provided to the public for non-emergency use only; tips may not be received by us until the following day.
  • In the event of an emergency, you should always contact 911. The tip line is not a replacement for emergency response
  • Anonymous tips can be reported via text message, with our app, or through a web-based application.  Messages can even include pictures and videos!
  • When a tip is submitted, it is sent to a 3rd party tip service, which acts as a privacy buffer between the sender and the NWRCP. The sender's identity and contact information are protected and are not provided to the NWRCP.
