Saint John Police are trying to get a younger generation of people to report crimes with a new method of giving tips.
A email tip hotline has been implemented--allowing people to report suspected crimes by simply sending an email.
Sgt. Jim Flemming says in this modern time, it is more likely someone will send off an email before calling the department.
Flemming says email tips have provided police the whereabouts of drug houses, as well as sexual predators.
The confidential email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
