Police Department

Drug Information

Drug tip hotline – 786-8864

The Anchorage Police Department provides a “Drug Hotline” for citizens to report drug-related activity.  Drug activity may be reported anonymously.  However, it is generally preferred that the identity of the caller be given.  This will assist officers if arrests are made and testimony in court is required.  If a citizen requests anonymity for fear of retaliation or any other reasons, officers will conduct their investigation without the identity of the complainant.

A citizen who has a friend or relative they suspect of drug-related activity may also use this number to provide us with pertinent information.  It is not necessary for officers to know the identity of the complainant.  If the identity is divulged, at the request of the complainant, this information will be kept confidential.
