Contacting Community Resource Officers
The Asheville Police Department is understaffed and currently does not have a dedicated Community Resource Officer (CRO) for our section of Asheville. To contact officers with the community engagement division for non-emergency community issues please call (828)271-6145 and leave a message or reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. Call 911 for emergencies.
If residents would like to remain anonymous while submitting non-emergency crime information, they can download the new TIP2APD phone app by searching Asheville PD in the app store. Individuals can also submit an anonymous tip through a text message. To send a text, type in the phone number 847411 and in the message body, type tip2apd followed by the tip.
Community Resource Officer Colby Fox responds to emails sent to the APD Community Engagement Division email and checks the status of community requests in the department’s records management system.
