Allegan County Silent Observer is being reintroduced as "SILENT O". Call 1-855-SILENT-O with your crime tips!
Through a cooperative effort of area businesses, law enforcement, and Chambers of Commerce, the Allegan County SILENT OBSERVER has been re-introduced as "Silent O". 1-855-SILENT-O.
The partnership is part of a proactive approach to address criminal justice problems in the county.
Allegan County law enforcement officials believe that many area residents witness activity or know information that could help solve major crimes, yet they don't report it out of fear of reprisal or a reluctance to get involved with the complexities of the criminal justice system.
Silent Observer allows you to play an important and fully anonymous role in keeping our neighborhoods, downtown areas and work places safe. Perhaps you know of someone who is selling or manufacturing drugs. You may learn the whereabouts of stolen property or witness a theft. You may hear of someone planning to commit a crime. Or you may see someone who is wanted by the police. This information and more is what law enforcement agencies need to help them address and prevent crime in the community.
Silent Observer offers you a safe way to come forward about serious crimes that affect the safety and well being of your neighborhood and community. When you call Silent Observer at 1-855-SILENT-O, the information you submit will be automatically routed to the appropriate law enforcement agency for investigation. Tips related to methamphetamines should be reported to 1-866-METH-TIP or (616) 944-6520.
