WHITEVILLE -- Residents have a new way to help get drugs off the street.
Whiteville Police have launched a new drug hotline, and they've put up "tip boxes." Now, the public can leave anonymous messages about drug activity.
Currently, there are eight boxes at local business. They bare the label: "See it, Hear it, Report it."
Officers will check the boxes weekly.
"Without the public helping, our job is almost impossible, this is just another way the public and the people here can form a coalition with us to clean up Whiteville," said Chief Jerry Britt.
If you would like to leave an anonymous message for the Whiteville Police call, 910-642-5111 ext. 300.
