In a continued effort to combat the heroin epidemic impacting the nation, the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office has launched a toll-free tip line to allow local residents the ability to anonymously report suspected narcotics activity.

The LCSO, as part of a regional heroin initiative called the Heroin Operations Team (HOT), has expanded the agency’s Narcotics tip line as a ‘HOT’line for suspected drug activity and drug usage in the county. Loudoun residents are encouraged to call 1-833-HOT-TIPS (1-833-468-8477) with any information regarding narcotics activity.

“Anonymity can be the key to getting drugs off of our streets or getting someone the help that they need,” said Loudoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman (R) in a prepared statement.

“We want to give residents that outlet and make sure all suspected drug activity is reported,” Chapman added

The Heroin Operations Team was formed in April 2015 after Chapman joined U.S. Rep. Barbara Comstock (R-Va.-10th) to employ a comprehensive approach to combat the heroin scourge that includes enforcement, education, prevention and recovery by incorporating local, state and federal law enforcement.

To report possible narcotics activity, contact the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office Narcotics HOTline by calling 1-833-HOT-TIPS (1-833-468-8477). In an emergency, please call 9-1-1 immediately.

Who would have thought one could pick up the phone and report suspicious activity to the police?

This is the kind of thinking that’s gonna win us the war on drugs!!

I think what this novel idea needs is a slogan to go along with it. How about, “just say no”?


Isn’t that why we have 911. Just remember 70% of the 50 million is going to a slush fund. They don’t know how to spend it yet but Comstock wants the never ending money spigot turned on to cure dopers, yikes!


What a novel idea! Am I the only one that thinks this is at least a decade over due??
