Submit a Crime Tip

TipSoft Anonymous Tip System

TipSoft will allow community members to anonymously provide tips to the Blount County Sheriff’s Office either online or by text message.

Those wishing to provide a tip by text message will be able to do so by sending a text using the agency keyword “BCSOTN” with an attached message. Tips can also be sent online by clicking on the “Submit a Tip” link found below.

We look forward to receiving your tips, but remember if there is an emergency, always dial 911 so that Law Enforcement and Emergency Services can respond as quickly as possible!

Submitting a tip using a cell phone:

  • Text your tip to 274637 (CRIMES)
  • Start your message with the agency keyword BCSOTN plus your message. Standard rates may apply.

Tips submitted through these methods are encrypted, entirely confidential, completely anonymous, and they are immediately and securely transmitted.
