Drug Tip Line - Anonymous!

Drug Tip Line 740-833-2790 or drugtaskforce@co.delaware.oh.us

By making one phone call, you can actually help get drugs off the streets - and you can remain anonymous. However, many people are often reluctant to "get involved." But this IS an anonymous tip line. Delaware County's Drug Task Force follows up on every tip it receives. And while you may not visibly see us following up on your tip, it doesn't mean we aren't! Key signs of drug trafficking include:

1) No indication the resident(s) work.

2) Residents appear to be living above their means (yes, this is a judgment call, but trust your gut).

3) Multiple vehicles at the residence.

4) Various vehicles visiting for short periods of time.

5) Sometimes, poor upkeep of the residence/property.

If it takes a village to help raise our children, then it certainly takes a County to help address this drug epidemic. Thank you for speaking up

'Missing Child' Safety Tips
Every year in the U.S., 465,000 children are reported missing. Friday is National Missing Children's Day, which is used to encourage parents, guardians, caregivers, and others concerned with the well-being of children to make child safety a priority. To commemorate this day, we share the following safety tips with you: 
Make sure your child knows his or her full name, home address and telephone number. Include this contact information in their backpack, coat, etc. Teach your child not to share this information with anyone he or she does not know without your permission. 
Talk to your children about the risks of sharing too much information on social media. Explain how "checking in" on social networks and sharing location information or routines can have negative consequences. 
Listen if your child says someone makes him or her feel uncomfortable. Ask questions to better understand why. It is important for children to learn to trust their instincts. 
-Contact authorites immediately if your child is missing so they can initiate the appropriate plans to alert responders and our communities.
