The Manhattan Beach Police Department's mission is to protect and serve the people of our community. One way we can continually improve our service to you is by hearing from you.

Your assistance in providing information can be very helpful in solving a crime. Although we hope that you feel comfortable contacting the Police Department with information you may have, we also understand that you may have some reservations in doing so and therefore we offer anonymous ways to report crime.

The Police Department offers several ways to report concerns and information regarding criminal activity anonymously:

  • Leave a voicemail message on the City's Anonymous Crime Tip Hotline at (310) 802-5171. (Make sure you speak clearly and slowly and give as much information as possible, e.g. dates, times, addresses, vehicles, and people involved.)
  • Call the Los Angeles Regional Crime Stoppers 24/7 Call Center using a toll free number (800) 222-TIPS (8477); phone lines are encrypted and calls are not recorded.
  • Fill out a tip online at the Crime Stoppers website.

Please do not use these resources to report a crime in progress or issues of an emergency nature. To report an emergency or a crime in progress, please call 9-1-1.

Although anonymous information is useful, please consider leaving your contact information. This will allow Detectives to properly follow up if additional questions need to be answered.
