The Amherst Police Department has installed a tip line in an effort to combat crime. Most incidents are witnessed by somebody. Often, citizens do not realize that they are witnesses until after they have left the scene or until they hear that a certain crime has been reported to police.
Some people want to help the police but are hesitant to “get involved”. The Amherst Police Department is hoping that these citizens will take advantage of the tip line, a welcome tool for investigators.
Tips can be made by calling 413-259-3344. The caller can remain anonymous.
