NDTip – Submit a Tip

If you witness a crime in progress, to include an impaired or reckless driver, or have an emergency, call 911 immediately. NDTIP is not a substitute for calling 911.



Use NDTip to submit an anonymous tip to the North Dakota Highway Patrol about crimes, suspicious activity, or non-emergency traffic concerns on North Dakota roadways.


Tip submissions to the NDHP are NOT monitored 24/7 and may not be seen for up to 72 hours.
