Chatham County has a new confidential tip line for the public to use. People can now call and speak directly with criminal investigators. The department said that this tip line will be a good addition to the ones that already exist.
Capt. Ben Herron added, "It's just another avenue they can contact us. In addition to Crimestoppers, we also have the iwatch, which is internet based. It just opens up the door. We're not in competition with Crimestoppers, its just another avenue by which people can call. They are calling the violent crime office directly, they are leaving their tip and we are responding back to them."
Those that would like to report a crime are encouraged to call 912.525.3124.
