COLUMBUS, KS --- The Cherokee County Sheriff's Office will now have better communication with people submitting crime tips.

People can now submit a crime tip by phone, online, or text.  The sheriff's office will be able to communicate with the tipster by text and email while the person remains anonymous.

To submit a tip by text, text the number 8-8-8-7-7-7 and type "Tip Cherokee" in the message.  People can now access the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office Facebook page on their website homepage.

The sheriff's office encourages residents to go to the website and sign up for neighborhood alerts.
