The Troup County Sheriffs Office is asking people to temporarily use a new number when reporting tips through Crime Stoppers.
TCSO, which mans the tip line, has been experiencing technical difficulties while upgrading its phone system. The issues have shut down the current Crime Stoppers tip line at 706-812-1000.
Deputies are asking the public to use the sheriff’s office main line, 706-883-1616, until the phone lines are fixed.
The Troup County sheriff’s officials hope to have the old Crime Stoppers phone number up and running soon.
