New gun tip line billboards go up in Milwaukee
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and Milwaukee Police Department announced a Tip Line and Billboard Campaign to encourage the residents to report firearm-related crimes.
Milwaukee-area citizens can call 1-800-ATF-GUNS (1-800-283-4867), to report gun crime. Tips can remain anonymous when providing information. Depending on the level of assistance, citizens may be eligible for monetary awards if the information leads to a successful prosecution.
Clear Channel Outdoor has donated electronic billboard space throughout the Milwaukee metro area to advertise the ATF Tip Line.
The campaign's goal is to increase citizen involvement in making communities safer and remind the public that it can report gun crime anonymously.
