Emergency Call 911 / Non-Emergency Phone Number 330-673-7732


KPD utilizes a cell phone and web based application which allows citizens to submit ANONYMOUS TIPS.

When a tip is submitted through any of the options listed below, it is sent to a third party service, which acts as a privacy buffer between you and the Kent Police Department in order to protect your identity and your contact information.  If you have a tip for the Kent Police Department, you can utilize any of the options listed below to provide vital information on crimes or criminals, helping to keep the City of Kent safe for everyone.

This service is being provided to the public for NON-EMERGENCY use.  It is not meant to be used as a substitute for calling 911 in emergency situations.  In the event of an emergency, you should always dial 911.  If your situation is not an emergency, but still requires an officer to respond, you may dial our non-emergency phone number at 330-673-7732.
